FIRM favourites with Kirklees audiences, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic returns to Huddersfield Town Hall.
And they bring with them a trio of enormously popular classics.
The orchestra is joined by conductor Jakub Hruša and pianist Yevgeny Sudbin for what is sure to be another audience highlight in the Kirklees Concert Season.
The programme starts with one of Smetana’s most entertaining poems Wallenstein’s Camp, followed by Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.24 C minor, long considered to be one of his greatest works.
Finally, Czech specialist Jakub Hruša completes the evening with Dvorák’s well loved Symphony No.9 in E minor From the New World.
Conductor Jakub Hruša studied at the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague and was acclaimed by Gramophone magazine in 2011 as one of the ten young conductors on the “verge of greatness”.
He is now Music Director and Chief Conductor of the Prague Philharmonia, Music Director of Glyndebourne on Tour and Principle Guest conductor of Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.
Pianist Yevgeny Sudbin is a festival regular he has performed all over the world including the Aspen Festival, La Roque d’Antheron and at the Verbier Festival.
See the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic on Thursday, May 10, at 7.30pm at Huddersfield Town Hall. A Talking Music session takes place at 6.40pm.
Tickets are £7.50 to £23.50 from Kirklees Booking Offices on 01484 223200 or www.kirklees.gov.uk/townhalls.
