BELA Bartok's scintillating Concerto for Orchestra rounds off an evening with the Nottingham Philharmonic at the city's Albert Hall tomorrow.
The conductor Serge Koussevitzky commissioned the piece for the Boston Symphony after Bartok emigrated to the USA in 1940.
Hungarian-born Noemi Gyori makes her debut with the NPO as the soloist in Carl Nielsen's Flute Concerto. Her success in an international flute competition led to an engagement at Carnegie Hall, and she returns to New York this autumn.
Conducted by Mark Heron, Sibelius' magnificent Seventh Symphony in C major completes the programme. Tickets from the Royal Centre box office, or at the door on the night.
