Wagner - Götterdämmerung: Funeral March (Act III) and Siegfried's Rhine Journey
Berlioz - Excerpts from The Trojans
Sir Mark Elder and Jonathon Heyward
This coming together of younger and more experienced musicians would have delighted our founder Sir Charles Hallé who conducted the orchestra’s very first concert 160 years ago, almost to this day. The event, beginning with a short open rehearsal, features exhilarating orchestral music from two works dear to the great man’s heart. Sir Mark Elder, just the ninth permanent conductor in the orchestra’s long history, begins with two thrilling orchestral highlights from Götterdämmerung, the final part of Wagner’s epic Ring cycle. Like his great predecessor, Sir Mark is a committed supporter of young talent. The Hallé’s Assistant Conductor and Music Director of the Hallé Youth Orchestra, Jonathon Heyward, takes up the baton with music from another truly epic operatic work, The Trojans by Berlioz. Sir Charles would have been so proud!
