AT THE BRIDGEWATER HALL, MANCHESTER


John Adams The Chairman Dances
Gershwin Piano Concerto
Tchaikovsky Symphony No.4

Jamie Phillips conductor | Andrew Zolinsky piano

Jamie Phillips, the Hallé’s greatly talented Associate Conductor, leads the Hallé Youth Orchestra in a fascinating programme of American and Russian music. The Chairman Dances draws on material from John Adams’ contemporary operatic classic Nixon in China. This ‘Foxtrot for Orchestra’ is a bustling musical image of the young Mao Tse-tung dancing with his actress mistress! Andrew Zolinsky, one of Britain’s most distinctive musical voices, is then the soloist in Gershwin’s vibrant, all-American Piano Concerto. First performed in 1924, its slow movement is a bluesy urban nightscape while its finale was described by Gershwin as ‘an orgy of rhythms’. Tchaikovsky’s epic Fourth Symphony is dominated by an ominous fate motif but ends in a glorious blaze of festivity.
