Hallé: Thursday Series - Brahms, Tarik O’Regan and Holst

Brahms Academic Festival Overture 10'
Tarik O’Regan A Celestial Map of the Sky: 1515 15'
Holst The Planets 50'

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Ladies of the Hallé Choir  | Hallé Youth Choir  | Manchester Grammar School Choir




A very special event celebrating the 500th birthday of Manchester Grammar School. How better to begin than with Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture, his cheerful medley of student songs?

To mark its quincentenary, the school has commissioned an exciting new work from one of the UK’s leading composers, Tarik O’Regan. A setting of poems inspired by the stars, his fast-paced A Celestial Map of the Sky: 1515 not only has MGS’s year of foundation in its title but will also be performed by massed vocal forces, including the school’s choir. The cosmic theme continues with a great masterpiece by a schoolteacher, Gustav Holst’s The Planets. From the apocalyptic brutality of Mars to the mysterious light of Neptune, Holst’s music is simply out of this world!

PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO PRE-CONCERT EVENT.

Hallé: Opus One Series - Boccherini/Berio, Mendelssohn and Mahler

Hallé: Opus One Series - Boccherini/Berio, Mendelssohn and Mahler

Boccherini/Berio Ritirata notturna di Madrid 8'
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto 29'
Mahler Symphony No.1 52'

Markus Stenz conductor | Simone Lamsma violin

Markus Stenz and the Hallé begin with Luciano Berio’s joyful take on a piece by the eighteenth-century composer Luigi Boccherini. The latter’s Ritirata notturna di Madrid, a delightful evocation of night time on the streets of the Spanish capital, was so popular in his day that Boccherini transcribed it for four different instrumental combinations. In 1975 Berio ‘mixed’ those four versions in this enjoyably disconcerting arrangement.

After her stunning Hallé debut last season, the superb Simone Lamsma returns to perform Mendelssohn’s much-loved Violin Concerto, a work that never fails to delight. Mahler believed that ‘a symphony must be like the world – it must contain everything.’ With its birdsong, fanfares and Jewish funeral music, his glorious First Symphony pretty much does just that, and its conclusion is one of the most uplifting ever written.

This programme is also being performed at The Bridgewater Hall on Thursday 23 April (7.30pm) and Sunday 26 April (7.30pm).

Boccherini-Berio 'Ritirata notturna di Madrid'
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor
Mahler Symphony No.1

Markus Stenz conductor | Simone Lamsma violin

Markus Stenz and the Hallé take on Mahler's incandescent First Symphony. This unforgettable work opens with birdsong and distant military fanfares before proceeding via a wonderfully rustic Ländler and the sounds of a Jewish funeral to its inspirational, life-affirming finale. The concert begins with Luciano Berio's joyful take on a piece by the eighteenth-century composer Luigi Boccherini. The latter's 'Ritirata notturna di Madrid', a delightful evocation of night time on the streets of the Spanish capital, was so popular in his day that Boccherini transcribed it for four different instrumental combinations. In 1975 Berio 'mixed' those four versions in this enjoyably quirky arrangement. The superb Simone Lamsma then performs Mendelssohn's much-loved Violin Concerto, an irresistible fusion of romantic melodiousness and classical restraint.

Pre-concert talk at 6pm.
