The Great Beauty: Concert
For Eastertime this year, the string section and soloists of the Orchestra of Opera North perform a concert of music inspired by the composers that feature on the soundtrack to Paolo Sorrentino’s love letter to the Eternal City, Rome.
The Great Beauty soundtrack includes pieces by Arvo Pärt, William Byrd and Henryk Górecki, and for this concert a hand-picked programme of pieces by these composers will fill the Howard Assembly Room.
The programme includes Festina Lente by Arvo Pärt, William Byrd’s Fantasia a 6 and Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3 (one of the highest selling classical recordings of all time on CD).
