Howard Shelley at 70

Line Up/ Support: Howard Shelley, Ulster Orchestra

Howard Shelley at 70 - Ulster Orchestra

Weber Overture - Euryanthe
Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 25
Brahms - Symphony No. 1

This concert is an opportunity to celebrate Howard Shelley's 70th birthday in fine musical style. Shelley is an elegant and delightful performer of Mozart, capable of bringing out all the charm and drama of the music.

The composer Olivier Messiaen, in his essays on Mozart’s concertos, stated that ‘the first movement is without a doubt the most finely wrought, the most perfect of all the first movements of Mozart’s concertos.’

Vast and symphonic in scope, it is a glorious centrepiece to showcase Shelley’s talents in the role of soloist. Brahms had been so intimidated by Schumann’s prediction that he was the man destined to ‘take over the mantle of Beethoven’ that it took him over 20 years to complete his First Symphony.
