Sheffield City Hall, Sheffield

Ticket from £5.60

Debussy - Marche écossaise sur un thème populaire
Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto No.1
Stravinsky - The Firebird: complete (1910)

Conductor
Sir Mark Elder

Featuring:
Alexander Gavrylyuk, Piano

To celebrate the 85th anniversary of Sheffield City Hall, Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé, for which the venue has long been something of a second home, open the season with this highly attractive programme. Russian music is a thread running through this season’s programme and tonight the virtuosic and thought-provoking Alexander Gavrylyuk plays Tchaikovsky’s beloved First Piano Concerto. Also beloved is Stravinsky’s melodious Firebird, tonight heard in its glorious entirety. This musical version of a Russian fairy tale begins in darkness but ends in great triumph and jubilation. The concert opens with Debussy’s high spirited and evocative tribute to Scotland, ‘March écossaise’.
