Yury Revich Olario

Forests & Fantasy

Sensational violinist and composer Yury Revich Olario is back on 11 June with another unmissable Firebird spectacular…

Yury brings us two beautiful works of his own alongside some wonderful music featuring his dazzling virtuosic talents as soloist with the Orchestra.

In the short video below Yury talks about the upcoming concert and its fantastic programme which includes a Fantasy from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, the famous Méditationby Massanet, Bizet’s every popular Carmen Fantasy – and music by himself too.

The second half of the programme features the magnificent Second Symphony by Jean Sibelius. Composed at the beginning of the 20th century, he said of this work that ‘My second symphony is a confession of the soul.’

Critics were divided following the symphony’s premiere, but the public loved it.

It was dubbed the ‘Symphony of Independence’ as it was written at a time of Russian sanctions on the Finnish language and culture. 

The concert will be conducted by our very own Michael Thrift. 

Tickets are now on sale for this memorable evening of great music.
