The Hallé’s Assistant Conductor, Jonathon Heyward, directs Weber’s enchanting and exhilarating Oberon Overture. Over the last few seasons Hallé audiences have adored the playing of Benjamin Grosvenor, one of the finest young pianists in the world. He performs Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, a work that tests the mettle of any soloist. Though initially dark-hued, the piece ends in exuberant fashion. Jonathan Scott then pulls out all the stops in Saint-Saëns’ impressive, fascinatingly-textured ‘Organ’ Symphony. Of composing the piece, Saint-Saëns wrote: ‘I gave everything to it that I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again.’
