Manchester - Beethoven, Mozart, Vaughan Williams and Sibelius

Beethoven Overture: Leonore No.3 14'
Mozart Piano Concerto No.21, ‘Elvira Madigan’ 29'
Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis 15'
Sibelius Symphony No.7 21'

Andrew Manze conductor
Francesco Piemontesi piano

In a relatively short period Andrew Manze has established himself as one of the finest conductors of his generation. His welcome return to the Hallé begins with one of the four overtures Beethoven composed for his only opera Fidelio

The Swiss pianist Francesco Piemontesi then enters for Mozart’s lovely Concerto No.21, a work that even by its composer’s standards is a wonderfully lyrical and moving creation. Vaughan Williams’s music is particularly important for Andrew Manze and this includes his gloriously ethereal Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis

The programme concludes with the epic sweep of Sibelius’s Seventh Symphony.

This concert is repeated on Thursday 6 March and Sunday 9 March at 7.30pm.

Hallé Youth Ensembles Concert

Programme to include: Walton Henry V (A Shakespeare Senario) - Complete Performance

‘Give me some music: music, moody food of us that trade in love.’ Over the centuries Shakespeare’s soaring genius has stirred composers from Berlioz to Britten, from Haydn to Henze and from Tchaikovsky to Tippett. In this splendid Shakespearian concert the gifted members of the Hallé Youth Ensembles present a programme of Bard-inspired gems including music from the brilliantly orchestrated score Walton wrote for Laurence Olivier’s film Henry V. Whether it’s the poignant strains of ‘Death of Falstaff’, the cut and thrust of ‘Charge and Battle’ or the rapturously victorious ‘Agincourt Song’, this is one of the most captivating soundtracks ever written. Even Olivier felt his film would have flopped without it!

Sheffield - Wagner, Bruch and Mendelssohn

Wagner Rienzi : Overture 12'
Bruch Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor 25'
Mendelssohn Symphony No. 3 in A minor, "Scottish" 37'

Karl-Heinz Steffens conductor | Jennifer Pike violin

Karl-Heinz Steffens brings his fire and passion to tonight’s programme and, with the Hallé, he whips up a storm of urgency in the overture to Wagner’s early grand opera, Rienzi.

Described by The Independent as “Britain’s foremost young fiddler”, Jennifer Pike, winner of the 2002 BBC Young Musician of the Year, plays the most popular violin concerto of all, Bruch’s passionate First. This Romantic showpiece, with its wonderful introduction, meltingly beautiful Adagio and breathtaking finale, remains consistently high in the classical charts.

Mendelssohn’s visit to Scotland inspired his delightful “Scottish” Symphony, its jaunty tunes associated, according to the composer, with men with “long red beards, tartan plaids, bonnets and feathers, naked knees and bagpipes in their hands”.

Hallé - MacCunn, Dowland/Purcell, Britten and Mendelssohn

Hallé - MacCunn, Dowland/Purcell, Britten and Mendelssohn

MacCunn Overture: The Land of the Mountain and the Flood 9'
Dowland/Purcell Suite of English music 12'
Britten Lachrymae 15'
Mendelssohn Symphony No.3, ‘Scottish’ 40'

Andrew Manze conductor | Timothy Pooley viola

Among much else Andrew Manze is a distinguished interpreter of early music. To complement Britten’s string arrangement of Purcell’s majestic Chacony, Manze has made two further adaptations of works by Dowland and Purcell to form an attractive suite of early English music. 

Dowland was the inspiration for Britten’s Lachrymae, a series of shadowy musical reflections for viola and strings with one of the most moving endings ever written. 

Framing this glorious English music are two conspicuously Caledonian works. Hamish MacCunn’s The Land of the Mountain and the Flood is an evocative musical counterpart to the popular Scottish landscape paintings of its time. Finally Manze renders Mendelssohn’s ‘Scottish Symphony’ as fresh and limpid as a highland stream.

Pre-concert event: 6.30pm
(free to ticket holders)
The conductor Andrew Manze, who makes a welcome return to the Hallé for both March’s Opus One programme and this evening’s concert, talks about the fascinating connections between tonight’s programme spanning four centuries of English, Scottish and German music.

A Night on the Bare Mountain Mussorgsky (orch Rimsky-Korsakov)
1812 Overture Tchaikovsky

Stephen Bell conductor | Alexandra Dariescu piano

This powerful evening includes work from Russian masters of orchestration including Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov. Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is one of his most iconic pieces of work - instantly recognisable from the first few bars - and full of pure emotion. His equally popular 1812 Overture has a rousing patriotic rhythm and triumphant finale.

Hallé - Elgar, Delius and Vaughan Williams

Elgar Introduction and Allegro for Strings 15'
Delius Brigg Fair 16'
Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony 63'

Sir Mark Elder conductor
Katherine Broderick soprano
Roderick Williams baritone
Hallé Choir

Sir Mark is a masterly interpreter of English repertoire and in this concert he, the Hallé and the Hallé Choir are joined by two of Britain’s best vocal talents in Vaughan Williams’s magnificent Sea Symphony. This grand symphonic setting of poems by Walt Whitman graphically evokes the sea itself while treating it as a metaphor of man’s voyage into eternity. 
Delius’s Brigg Fair is a set of variations on a folk song about a country lad ‘for love inclined’ and features on the Hallé’s acclaimed CD, English Rhapsody. 


The concert opens with Elgar’s richly melodic Introduction and Allegro, a heartfelt tribute to the ‘sweet borderland’ of Herefordshire where the composer was living at the time.
