Sheffield City Hall’s international concert programme opens

Pianist Sunwook Kim joins the Hallé orchestra for the opening performance of the international concert season at Sheffield City Hall.

They will perform an exhilarating all Russian programme opening with the whirlwind of an overture Glinka composed for his opera Ruslan and Ludmilla.

Rachmaninov’s Third Piano Concerto follows and the night concludes with Rachmaninov’s glorious Third Symphony,
