Hallé: Opus One Series - Prokofiev, Sibelius and Mussorgsky

Hallé: Opus One Series - Prokofiev, Sibelius and Mussorgsky

Prokofiev Cinderella: ballet scenes 20'
Sibelius Violin Concerto 32'
Mussorgsky orch. Ravel Pictures at an Exhibition 30'

Hannu Lintu conductor | Nikolaj Znaider violin


 

The Hallé opens the season with Finnish maestro Hannu Lintu. First come scenes from Prokofiev’s captivating ballet score, Cinderella – Prokofiev at his most accessible and melodious.

Nikolaj Znaider, a great Hallé favourite and a player described by The Strad as ‘intelligent, soulful and impassioned’, then enters for Sibelius’s wonderfully wintry Violin Concerto. Its energetic finale has been drolly described as a ‘polonaise for polar bears’!

In the second half Lintu and the Hallé provide a guided gallery tour in the form of Mussorgsky’s resplendent Pictures at an Exhibition. From its opening ‘Promenade’ to the majestic ‘Great Gate of Kiev’, it is a brilliant transformation of the visual into the musical, all the more so because of Ravel’s quite stunning orchestration.

Full price tickets from £11
£3 student tickets are available in the stalls.

If you are 26 or under PwC and the Hallé have teamed up to create the PwC Hallé Under 26 ticket. A limited number of stalls seats, usually worth up to £27, are being offered at half price.

Hallé: Opus One Series - Brahms and Dvorák

Hallé: Opus One Series - Brahms and Dvorák

Brahms Piano Concerto No.1 44'
Dvorák Symphony No.8 36'

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Paul Lewis piano

Sir Mark and the Hallé are joined by the outstanding Paul Lewis for Brahms’s dramatic and highly virtuosic First Piano Concerto. After the monumental power of its first movement and its wistful and spacious slow movement (a musical portrait of Robert Schumann’s wife, Clara), the finale finds Brahms at his most engagingly playful.

‘The fellow has more ideas than all of us,’ wrote Brahms of his friend Antonín Dvorák. ‘Anybody else could cobble together main themes out of what he throws away.’ Nowhere is Dvorák’s remarkable inventiveness more in evidence than in his magnificent Eighth Symphony, a work he composed with the melodies ‘just pouring out’, as he put it. And pour out they most certainly do!

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.

Hallé: Opus One Series - The Nutcracker: complete

Hallé: Opus One Series - The Nutcracker: complete

Tchaikovsky The Nutcracker: complete 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!
