Hallé: Opus One Series - Berlioz, Bizet and Shostakovich

Hallé: Opus One Series - Berlioz, Bizet and Shostakovich

Berlioz Overture: Le Corsaire 10'
Bizet Carmen: selection 25'
Shostakovich Symphony No.5 47'

Sir Mark Elder conductor

Carmen, Bizet’s last and greatest work, was initially a critical failure but is now rightly regarded as a masterpiece with some of the best-loved arias in all opera. As these performances will show, the work also contains much superb, purely-orchestral music.

Not for nothing are Sir Mark and the Hallé combining this selection with Shostakovich’s legendary Fifth Symphony. A few years before Shostakovich composed this great work he suffered unrequited love for a woman who was to marry a Spaniard named Roman Carmen (in rejecting Shostakovich, she had literally become his Carmen). Thus the opera’s Habanera theme is almost directly quoted in the symphony’s first movement. 

Preceding this fascinating pairing is Berlioz’s swashbuckling Le Corsaire, an overture both brashly heroic and tenderly romantic.

This programme is also being performed at The Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 13 November (7.30pm) and Sunday 16 November (7.30pm).

Hallé: Opus One Series - The Nutcracker: complete concert performance

Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker: complete concert performance 86'

Andrew Gourlay conductor

‘Astonishingly rich in detailed inspiration and from beginning to end, beautiful, melodious, original’ was how one contemporary judged Tchaikovsky’s enchanting seasonal ballet, The Nutcracker. In these concerts Andrew Gourlay and the Hallé give an early Christmas treat by performing this masterly score in its glorious entirety.

And what a treat it promises to be. From its wonderfully bustling opening bars to the ‘Waltz of the Flowers’, the ‘Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy’ and its magnificent finale, we travel to the Kingdom of Sweets and back. A musical journey you’ll never forget. There might be a more magical way to build up to Christmas, but we can’t think of one!

This programme is also being performed at The Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 11 December (7.30pm) and Sunday 14 December (7.30pm).

Hallé: Opus One Series - Weber, Schumann and Brahms

Hallé: Opus One Series - Weber, Schumann and Brahms

Weber Overture: Der Freischütz 10'
Schumann Cello Concerto 26'
Brahms Symphony No.4 42'

Stanislaw Skrowaczewski conductor | Nicholas Trygstad cello

Former Principal Conductor Stanislaw Skrowaczewski is a much-loved Hallé institution and he returns to conduct music particularly close to his heart. With its hunting horns and orchestral evocations of the forces of good and evil, the overture Weber composed for his opera Der Freischütz is a masterfully constructed microcosm of the opera itself.

The Hallé’s consummate Principal Cellist Nicholas Trygstad then joins the great maestro for Schumann’s intimate Cello Concerto, a piece that showcases the lyrical and poetic qualities of the instrument, which sings out against a soft cushion of orchestral sound.

After the interval is Brahms’s Fourth Symphony, his greatest achievement in orchestral music. Its finale, a magnificent set of variations, is perhaps the most remarkable part of this most remarkable work.

This programme is also being performed at The Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 29 January (7.30pm) and Sunday 1 February (7.30pm).

Hallé: Opus One Series - Mendelssohn, Mozart and Beethoven

Mendelssohn Overture: The Fair Melusine 10'
Mozart Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola K.364 30'
Beethoven Symphony No.5 34'

Thomas Zehetmair conductor/violin | Ruth Killius viola

Thomas Zehetmair returns to Manchester in the dual role of conductor and soloist. Mendelssohn’s lovely The Fair Melusine is a watery affair that influenced Wagner in his own rippling prelude to Das Rheingold.

Zehetmair then exchanges baton for violin bow and joins viola player Ruth Killius for Mozart’s inspired and inspiring Sinfonia Concertante K364. Mozart was a viola player himself and throughout the piece the two instruments are dealt a scrupulously even hand as they engage in a musical dialogue of quite exquisite beauty. The work’s slow movement is one of the most moving ever written.

And finally Beethoven’s iconic Fifth Symphony: in the words of the great author E.M. Forster, ‘the most sublime noise that has ever penetrated into the ear of man.’

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