Classical Music 7/5/10

Ulster Orchestra play ravel, Ulster Hall, tonight, 7.45pm



Among the most popular of all piano concertos, Ravel’s G major, written not long before he died in 1931, has got everything — a beautiful, long-breathed melody in the second movement and high jinks and joviality in the outer two movements. Tonight, renowned French pianist Pascal Rogé will be the apt soloist in this French masterpiece. The Dutch conductor Jac van Steen conducts three other works on the programme — Fauré’s ‘Pélleas et Mélisande’ Suite, Liszt’s ‘Les Prélude’, and the |Seventh Symphony by Sibelius. Tickets: £8-£20 (£3 student standby) www.ulsterorchestra.com , Tel: 02890 239955.

You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
