Orchestra of Opera North: The Emperor - Kirklees Concert Season 2019 / 2020

About the event

A masterclass in striking orchestral scores

Commanding orchestral showstoppers coupled with a phenomenal piano solo: you’ve got the perfect recipe for an impressive start to the Concert Season.


Short, sharp and dynamic, Webern’s Passacaglia is a bold opening to this year’s orchestral season. The music arches as it builds in intensity, spiralling
through the sections with fearsome precision.

Fizzing with vibrant energy, Schubert’s Symphony No. 5 simply bursts with light-hearted, expressive melodies
– a pure joy.

From extreme power to tender elegance, Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 demands to be experienced live as the soloist drives the orchestra down unexpected avenues with dramatic bursts of pace and rhythmic martial energy.
