France, Italy, Scotland Come Together In Hull Philharmonic's Rousing Finale

France and Scotland renew old acquaintance in Hull Philharmonic Orchestra’s final concert of a successful season that will feature great music from the Romantic period at Hull City Hall on May 9 (7.30pm).

Cathy Marwood, who will be soloist in Berlioz’s concerto, Harold in Italy, is principal viola with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra viola and a member of the Hebrides Ensemble. Glaswegian Donald Robinson, who will feature in Saint-Saens’ Cello Concerto in A minor, is a gifted young musician who has played with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra at the Proms.
