Tchaikovsky Fantasy Overture: Romeo and Juliet 22’
Barber Violin Concerto 22’
Delius The Walk to the Paradise Garden 10’
Shostakovich Symphony No.6 30’
Andrew Gourlay conductor | Valeriy Sokolov violin
The Walk to the Paradise Garden is a sumptuously orchestrated entr’acte Delius wrote for his most successful opera A Village Romeo and Juliet – the Shakespearian original of which inspired Tchaikovsky to compose his brooding and dramatic Fantasy Overture. Samuel Barber’s ravishingly romantic Violin Concerto, is a work both lyrical and stunningly virtuosic. The Hallé’s outstanding former Assistant Conductor Andrew Gourlay rounds off events with his reading of Shostakovich’s fascinating Sixth Symphony. It begins with an extraordinary slow movement and progresses through a scherzo to a triumphant (and wonderfully unruly) conclusion.
