Kirklees Concert Season: Symphonic Sitar Premiere - Huddersfield Town Hall




Please check websites of all organisations or businesses before you visit. With the current Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, many businesses are changing their opening hours.

Ulvi Cemal Erkin, Jasdeep Singh Degun, Sibelius

Two musical traditions meet in a world premiere and a Kirklees Concert Season first, at the centre of a spectacular programme taking its inspiration from beyond Western Europe.

THE MUSIC… An unrelenting whirlwind, Erkin’s Köçekçe Suite fuses Turkish folk traditions with western symphonic music.
Composed and performed by the award-winning sitarist Jasdeep Singh Degun, Arya is an exciting new concerto. Simmering with grandeur and emotionally charged music, the melody moves from the sitar around the orchestra in gorgeous sweeps of sound.

Sibelius’ joyful Karelia and mysterious Swan of Tuonela are steeped in Finnish folklore and atmosphere. His final symphony, filled with majestic beauty, is a favourite for many and closes the concert.

Start time 4.30 pm Talking Music begins at 3.40pm
