Hallé - Berlioz, Beethoven and Tchaikovsky

Berlioz Overture: Le Carnaval romain 8'
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.3 35'
Tchaikovsky Symphony No.6, ‘Pathétique’ 44'

Jamie Phillips conductor | John Lill piano

Hallé Assistant Conductor Jamie Phillips makes his Opus One debut with Tchaikovsky’s ‘Pathétique’ Symphony, one of the great swansongs in musical history. From dark beginnings, full of foreboding, it proceeds via an uneasy waltz and a far-from triumphal march to a closure of near-unbearable poignancy. It is an experience not to be missed. 

Before this, John Lill – an old friend of the Hallé and a pianist with a profound understanding of the music of Beethoven – returns for that composer’s impressive C minor Concerto. 

The concerts open with Berlioz’s irrepressible Le Carnaval romain, one of the most brilliant concert overtures ever written.

Hallé - Shostakovich, Casken and Weill

Hallé - Shostakovich, Casken and Weill

Shostakovich The Golden Age: music from the ballet 22'
John Casken Apollinaire’s Bird for Oboe and Orchestra - world premiere 20'
Weill The Seven Deadly Sins 39'

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Stéphane Rancourt oboe

The Seven Deadly Sins cast includes:
Jessie Buckley, Anna Cooper, Sam Furness, Joshua Ellicott and David Soar
Caroline Clegg director

Join the Hallé for a semi-staged performance of Kurt Weill’s thrilling work of musical theatre, The Seven Deadly Sins. Weill’s last major collaboration with Bertolt Brecht is an inventive and highly entertaining parable about the evils of greed and capitalism.

Our sinner, Anna, has a split personality. Her soul is played by a dancer, and her ‘rational’ side is played by Jessie Buckley (recently seen on stage with Jude Law in Henry V). We join her as she visits different American cities, trying to raise money to build a family home, envying, lusting and coveting as she goes.

Shostakovich’s ballet The Golden Age also visits vice and corruption, drawing just as brilliantly on cabaret and the music hall to flavour the composer’s own take on decadence.

The evening also includes a world premiere. John Casken’s latest major Hallé commission – a beautiful concerto for orchestra and oboe entitled Apollinaire’s Bird - is performed by the Hallé’s own Stéphane Rancourt. This premiere will be recorded on the night for NMC Recordings and will be available as a free download after the concert for a limited time only. If you would like to receive this recording then please email: casken@nmcrec.co.uk


Pre-concert event: 6.30pm
(free to ticket holders)
John Casken, one of Britain’s most distinguished composers - and Emeritus Professor of Music at The University of Manchester - will talk about his long-awaited Concerto for Oboe, Apollinaire’s Bird, which receives its world premiere tonight.

Leeds - Ravel, Tchaikovsky and Beethoven

Ravel Mother Goose (complete ballet music) 25'
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 32'
Beethoven Symphony No. 7 38'

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Sofya Gulyak piano

This evening brings a rare opportunity to hear Ravel’s beguiling ballet score Mother Goose in its glorious entirety. Each movement takes its inspiration from a French fairy tale but this full-length version adds to the fantastical mix some equally charming orchestral interludes.

Sir Mark is joined by the Russian pianist, Sofya Gulyak for a performance of Tchaikovsky's breathtaking first piano concerto.

The dancing resumes with Beethoven’s great ‘apotheosis of the dance’ (as Wagner aptly dubbed it). Despite the solemnity of its slow movement much of the composer’s Seventh Symphony can barely contain its high-spirited energy. A superb way to end the night!
