Sinfonia No. 6 in E flat major, MWV N6

Arvo Pärt
Silouan’s Song

Concerto Funebre

Sinfonia No. 10 in B minor, MWV N10 Viatore

Pēteris Vasks

Violin Concerto in E major, BWV 1042


Mendelssohn’s music was notoriously banned in 1936 by a Nazi regime which labelled the Jewish composer “a dangerous accident of musical history”. Hartmann’s Concerto Funebre, dashed off in the autumn of 1939, represents the contrasting hope and hopelessness of a country plunged into war.

Arvo Pärt and Pēteris Vasks use their music as a vehicle for spiritual questioning, to transcendent effect, and Bach’s ebullient E major concerto is a testament to the pure, uplifting joy of melody and harmony.

Together with world-renowned Russian violinist Alina Ibragimova, join us for an exploration of the political, spiritual and emotional power of music.

Please note that entry to this event is through the back entrance of the museum.

After-hours access to Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

We are very happy to be able to offer audience members the chance to explore the museum before and after the concert.

Doors will open at 7pm, allowing an hour to visit the museum before the concert starts at 8pm. After the concert, as well as access to the museum, you are then invited to join us for an exclusive viewing of the temporary exhibition, Alphonse Mucha: In Search Of Beauty.

This is all free of charge to ticketholders, and the bar will be open throughout.
