Violinist Yuko Uchiyama at University of Hertfordshire
ACCLAIMED violinist Yuko Uchiyama from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is appearing with the de Havilland Philharmonic at the University of Herts on Sunday.
Originally from Japan, Yuko has won several prestigious national and international music awards as well as critical acclaim.
She has performed with the university’s resident orchestra once before and she has also recorded on its classical record label UHRecordings.
The de Havilland Philharmonic will open the concert with Carl Neilsen’s Helios Overture, a short work depicting the passage of the sun in the sky from dawn to nightfall, followed by Sibelius’s Violin Concerto performed by Yuko.
Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique completes the second half of the concert – a tone poem based on the composer’s own story of an artist’s obsessed love for a young woman and his many opium-filled imaginings.
