Hallé: Thursday Series - Shostakovich and Ravel

Shostakovich Violin Concerto No.1 39'
Ravel Daphnis et Chloé – complete ballet 50'

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Viktoria Mullova violin | Hallé Choir



Sir Mark, the Hallé and the Hallé Choir give a rare complete performance of Ravel’s great ballet score Daphnis et Chloé. Ravel described the work as ‘a choreographic symphony in three parts, a vast musical fresco faithful to the Greece of my dreams.’ It is an incredibly powerful and atmospheric piece that requires considerable orchestral forces, including an array of percussion instruments (even a wind machine makes a gusty cameo) as well as a wordless chorus.

Tonight the distinguished violinist Viktoria Mullova brings her celebrated artistry to the first in the Hallé’s season-long survey of all six of Shostakovich’s concertos. Its remarkably wide range of expression and its sheer wealth of colour make it one of the greatest violin concertos ever written.

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO PRE-CONCERT EVENT

Brahms Piano Concerto No.1
Wagner Overture: The Flying Dutchman
Sibelius Symphony No.5

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Paul Lewis piano

The new Nottingham Classics season begins dramatically with Brahms's First Piano Concerto. Brahms may have been only 25 when he wrote it, but this musical epic distils some of his most powerful emotions. Acclaimed British pianist Paul Lewis makes an eagerly-anticipated return to the Royal Concert Hall after a break of ten years. The storm and stress of Brahms's Concerto is matched by Wagner's tempestuous overture to his opera The Flying Dutchman before Sibelius's Fifth Symphony ends the concert with a compelling Finnish soundscape, its concentrated energy driving towards a glorious, soaring conclusion.

Free pre-concert talk, 6.30pm in the auditorium: Sir Mark Elder introduces the programme.

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!

R. Strauss Intermezzo: Waltz Scene 9'
Chopin Piano Concerto No.2 30'
Brett Dean ‘Testament’ – music for orchestra (2008) 14'
Beethoven Symphony No.1 25' 

Olari Elts conductor | Sunwook Kim piano*



The Hallé’s Bridgewater Hall concert on Thursday 23 October promises to be one of the most enthralling of the season. The concert features the Hallé debut of one of Europe’s most sought-after musicians, the Estonian conductor Olari Elts. He will lead us through a typically eclectic tour through some apparently different musical eras. He begins with the witty orchestral interlude from Richard Strauss’s last great opera Intermezzo. It was intended as a glimpse into the composer’s own life at home, and was inspired by the light comedies of the 18th century.

We then have the contemplative Second Piano Concerto by Chopin. Its grace and astonishing beauty are intertwined with passages of near alarming difficulty, indeed after giving its premiere the composer was hailed as the ‘Paganini of the Piano’. It is an entirely appropriate piece for Hallé favourite Sunwook Kim's famous virtuosity.

Beethoven’s revolutionary First Symphony is prefaced by Brett Dean’s atmospheric tribute; it was inspired by the Heiligenstadt Testament, the famous document in which Beethoven confronted his deafness and resolved to fulfil his artistic destiny. 

Pre-concert event at 6.30pm - free to concert ticket holders
Olari Elts and Geoffrey Owen
Olari Elts, a welcome guest on the podium of many European and British orchestras, makes his Hallé debut.  The Estonian conductor’s eclectic tastes are reflected in the works he has chosen to perform tonight. He talks to Geoffrey Owen about his approach to music-making, with musical illustrations by students from the Royal Northern College of Music.

*The Hallé Concerts Society is very grateful to Sunwook Kim for replacing Dejan Lazic who has had to withdraw.
