We are honoured to welcome back the Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra in an unmissable finale to our summer series.

This new programme centres on Beethoven’s towering Eroica Symphony, “a revolutionary work provoked by both personal crisis and geopolitical turmoil” (Houston Symphony), alongside Verdi’s Force of Destiny Overture and two pieces from Ukrainian composers, including Skoryk's Melody – which is frequently described as the spiritual hymn of Ukraine.

Overture to La forza del destino (7’)
Yevhen Stankovych:
Violin Concerto No.2 (23’)
Melody in A minor (5’)
Symphony No.3 in E flat, Op.55 ‘Eroica’ (50’)
