The Bridgewater Hall
Introduction and Allegro for Strings 15'
Brigg Fair 16'
A Sea Symphony 63'
Sir Mark Elder
Sir Mark is a masterly interpreter of English repertoire and in this concert he, the Hallé and the Hallé Choir are joined by two of Britain’s best vocal talents in Vaughan Williams’s magnificent Sea Symphony
. This grand symphonic setting of poems by Walt Whitman graphically evokes the sea itself while treating it as a metaphor of man’s voyage into eternity.
Delius’s Brigg Fair is a set of variations on a folk song about a country lad ‘for love inclined’ and features on the Hallé’s acclaimed CD, English Rhapsody.
The concert opens with Elgar’s richly melodic Introduction and Allegro, a heartfelt tribute to the ‘sweet borderland’ of Herefordshire where the composer was living at the time.
