Hallé and Hallé Youth Orchestra

Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances (open rehearsal and performance)

Jamie Phillips conductor

This special event blends youth and experience as the Hallé Youth Orchestra and the Hallé join forces for Rachmaninov’s final work, his scintillating Symphonic Dances. Inspired by the different phases of man’s life (which Rachmaninov thought of as ‘Noon’, ‘Evening’ and ‘Midnight’), it is the ideal piece to bring musicians of all ages together. In the first half, Hallé Assistant Conductor Jamie Phillips puts the players through their paces in an open rehearsal – a fascinating insight into the workings of an orchestra – while in the second half he conducts a complete performance of this multifaceted and technically-demanding orchestral masterpiece. A rich learning experience for all concerned!

The programme includes:

Horowitz/Flanders Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo
Kodály Variations on a Hungarian folksong (The Peacock)

Join the highly-gifted members of the Hallé Youth Orchestra, Youth Choir, Youth Training Choir and Children’s Choir for a matinee of animal magic, a veritable menagerie of music inspired by all creatures great and small.

As this afternoon’s programme delightfully demonstrates, the influence of the animal kingdom has created some of the most exotic, enjoyable and entertaining music ever written, not least the vibrant plumage of Kodály’s ‘Peacock Variations’, here played by the outstanding Hallé Youth Orchestra. The concert also includes a performance of Captain Noah and His Floating Zoo in which the Hallé Children’s Choir board a magical ark two by two. With captivating music by Joseph Horowitz and witty lyrics by Michael Flanders, this irresistible take on the Old Testament tale is sure to float your boat!
