Friday Concert

I attended a very good BBC Radio 3 Invitation Concert at the Ulster Hall in Belfast last night. The conductor was our very own Kenneth Montgomery OBE; and the soloist was the talented Irish violinist, Catherine Leonard.

The programme included music by Hillsborough's Sir Hamilton Harty; Fanny Mendelssohn; Felix Mendelssohn; Ina Boyle; and Elaine Agnew.

My favourite piece of the evening was Harty's masterpiece, With the Wild Geese. The trumpeters used Baroque trumpets for the Mendelssohn works.
