Beethoven Overture: Egmont
Brahms Violin Concerto in D
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 2 (Little Russian)

Ryan Wigglesworth conductor | Simone Lamsma violin

Hull City Hall welcomes Ryan Wigglesworth in his first season as the Hallé’s Principal Guest Conductor. His wonderfully Romantic programme starts with Beethoven’s famous tribute to Count Egmont, the Habsburg hero whose execution started a war. Brahms’ songful Violin Concerto, composed in the summery Alps, draws on his love of vibrant gypsy music and is packed with tunes. Simone Lamsma has attracted praise all over the world for her interpretation of this concert favourite, and is guaranteed a magnificent reception at the end of the rousing finale. ‘The whole company could almost have torn me to pieces in their delight’, wrote Tchaikovsky after a preview of his bright Second Symphony at a St Petersburg soiree. Nicknamed ‘Little Russian’ – referring, not un-controversially, to Ukraine – each of its four movements quotes Ukrainian folk songs, ending in typical Tchaikovsky style guaranteed to produce a great ovation.

There will be a pre-concert lecture at 6.15pm with Dr Simon Debruslais (Lecturer in Music, School of Drama, Music and Screen at the University of Hull) and a pre-concert talk at 6.40pm. Both events are free to ticket holders.

Thursday: Mahler, Shostakovich


AT THE BRIDGEWATER HALL, MANCHESTER



Rachmaninov Isle of the Dead 20'
Mahler Kindertotenlieder 26'
Shostakovich Symphony No.15 42'

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Roderick Williams baritone

This concert opens with Rachmaninov’s Isle of the Dead, his great, mystical tone poem depicting Charon, the ferryman of Greek mythology. The composition of Mahler’s Kindertotenlieder coincided with that of his Sixth Symphony, a work Sir Mark conducted here in October. Featuring tonight the renowned Roderick Williams, these gentle and intimate songs express sorrow, tenderness, wistfulness and finally, resignation to fate. Shostakovich likened the first movement of his fifteenth and last symphony to a ‘toy shop’. Laden with quotations from his own works, it also includes most famously a bizarre reference to the galop from Rossini’s William Tell Overture. As with other works from the last years of his life the music treads a fine line between vitality and disillusion. The emergence of the ‘Fate’ motif from Wagner’s Die Walküre is just one of many signs of underlying unease behind the mask.

Pre-concert event at 6.30pm

Tom Redmond, Hallé horn player, animateur and BBC Radio 3 broadcaster, offers insights into tonight’s programme looking at the influences behind the pieces with the theme of Fate again making an appearance. Musical illustration is provided by pupils from Chetham’s School of Music. All pre-concert talks are in The Bridgewater Hall auditorium. 

Ticket prices and booking fees:

Full price tickets from £13 (including booking fee*)
£5 student tickets (including booking fee*) are available for many Hallé concerts. See here for more information.

    R. Strauss Don Juan 19'
    Grieg Piano Concerto 31'
    Sibelius Symphony No.5 30'

    Okko Kamu conductor | Alexander Gavrylyuk piano

    The distinguished Finnish conductor, Okko Kamu, conducts the Fifth Symphony of his great compatriot Sibelius. It is an optimistic piece that concludes majestically with what Sibelius called his ‘Swan Hymn’.
    Multi-award-winning Alexander Gavrylyuk is a pianist of great sensitivity and technical prowess and in these concerts he performs Grieg’s ever-popular Concerto. Its musical language is distinctly Nordic, drawing on the melodies and dance rhythms of the region’s rich store of folk music. Strauss’s virtuosic Don Juan is a tone poem about the legendary fictional libertine. In it Strauss presents a series of colourful episodes, each representing the Don’s seductions and triumphs, and finally his demise when, world weary, he allows himself to be slain in a dual.

    This programme is also being performed at The Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 18 February (7.30pm) and Sunday 21 February (7.30pm).
