Hallé: Opus One Series - Tchaikovsky , Prokofiev and Sibelius

Hallé: Opus One Series - Tchaikovsky , Prokofiev and Sibelius

Tchaikovsky Swan Lake: suite 10'
Prokofiev Piano Concerto No.1 30'
Sibelius Symphony No.1 42'

Karl-Heinz Steffens conductor | Denis Kozhukhin piano

The extraordinary Denis Kozhukhin plays Prokofiev’s wonderfully iconoclastic and fiendishly virtuosic First Piano Concerto. After a performance of the work in 1914, an astonished listener described it as ‘young man’s music’ like ‘the onrushing forwards in my one unfortunate soccer experience’! However, its vigorous athleticism vies with passages of tender, Rachmaninov-like lyricism. Sibelius’s First Symphony owes much to the influence of Tchaikovsky, yet it remains an intensely personal and highly original statement. In turn haunting, stormy and passionate, it culminates in one of the most stirring ‘big tune’ finales in the repertoire. The concert opens with another wonderful treat: the richly melodic orchestral suite from Tchaikovsky’s beguiling ballet score Swan Lake.

This programme is also being performed at The Bridgewater Hall on Wednesday 25 March (2.15pm) and Thursday 26 March (7.30pm).

Hallé: Opus One Series - Boccherini/Berio, Mendelssohn and Mahler

Hallé: Opus One Series - Boccherini/Berio, Mendelssohn and Mahler

Boccherini/Berio Ritirata notturna di Madrid 8'
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto 29'
Mahler Symphony No.1 52'

Markus Stenz conductor | Simone Lamsma violin

Markus Stenz and the Hallé begin with Luciano Berio’s joyful take on a piece by the eighteenth-century composer Luigi Boccherini. The latter’s Ritirata notturna di Madrid, a delightful evocation of night time on the streets of the Spanish capital, was so popular in his day that Boccherini transcribed it for four different instrumental combinations. In 1975 Berio ‘mixed’ those four versions in this enjoyably disconcerting arrangement.

After her stunning Hallé debut last season, the superb Simone Lamsma returns to perform Mendelssohn’s much-loved Violin Concerto, a work that never fails to delight. Mahler believed that ‘a symphony must be like the world – it must contain everything.’ With its birdsong, fanfares and Jewish funeral music, his glorious First Symphony pretty much does just that, and its conclusion is one of the most uplifting ever written.

This programme is also being performed at The Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 23 April (7.30pm) and Sunday 26 April (7.30pm).

Hallé: Opus One Series - Glinka, Beethoven and Rachmaninov

Hallé: Opus One Series - Glinka, Beethoven and Rachmaninov

Glinka Overture: Ruslan and Ludmilla 6'
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.4 35'
Rachmaninov Symphony No.2 48'

Jamie Phillips conductor | Andrew Tyson piano

Jamie Phillips, the Hallé’s youngest ever Assistant Conductor, takes to the podium for Rachmaninov’s magnificent Second Symphony. With its wealth of great melodies it is a superb reminder that when it was first performed in 1908, its composer remained a glorious romantic anachronism.

Before this, Andrew Tyson, winner of the Terence Judd-Hallé Orchestra Prize at the 2012 Leeds International Piano Competition, returns for the limpid beauty of Beethoven’s Fourth Concerto. Praised by the New York Times for the ‘passion and poetry’ of his playing, these are qualities Tyson is sure to bring to the work. Though Glinka’s opera Ruslan and Ludmilla is rarely heard outside Russia, its thrilling overture is one of the most popular concert-starters of them all.

This programme is also being performed at The Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 14 May (7.30pm) and Sunday 17 May (7.30pm).
