Middlesbrough Town Hall’s hugely popular winter & spring classical music season comes to rousing close with two special nights on consecutive weeks.

Northern Sinfonia are set for another busy night on Thursday 28 April, closely followed by the world-renowned Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra on Thursday 5 May.

The last of the Northern Sinfonia’s concerts this season will be conducted by Nicholas Kraemer, with Bradley Creswick as guest violin soloist, and has a pastoral theme running throughout.

Copland’s evocative Appalachian Spring is followed by Vaughn Williams’ elegiac tribute to the English landscape.

The second half of the concert sees the orchestra perform Beethoven’s musical homage to the countryside around Vienna that he loved so much.

Then, just a week later, The Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Alexei Stepanov with guest piano soloist Ivan Rudin, brings the season to a pulsating finale.

The Bolshoi have been at the centre of Russian musical life for over two centuries, and the first half of their show sees them perform a suite from Rimsky Korsakov’s exotic opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan.

This will be followed by distinguished Russian pianist Ivan Rudin giving a performance of Rachmaninov’s lyrical 1st Piano Concerto, with its pulsating outer movements and beautiful slow movement.

In the second half, the orchestra will perform some of the most popular music that Tchaikovsky ever composed – music from his much-loved ballet The Nutcracker.
