Blackburn King George's Hall, Blackburn

Tickets from £18 (concessions available)

Rimsky-Korsakov - May Night Overture
Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto No.1
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No.5

Pablo González

Barry Douglas, Piano

Pablo González makes an early return to get the season off to a rousing start with the Hallé, opening this enticing all-Russian programme with Rimsky-Korsakov’s resplendent, richly melodic May Night Overture. In 1986 Barry Douglas launched his stellar career by winning the Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky International Piano Competition in Moscow. Who better to perform Tchaikovsky’s beloved First Concerto than the great Ulsterman himself?  Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, like his Fourth, features a recurrent fate motif and takes us from private despondency to a very public joy.
