Brahms - Hungarian Dances
Liszt - Piano Concerto No.1
Bartók - Concerto for Orchestra
Bertrand Chamayou, piano
Both conductor and soloist are Hallé debut artists. From Hong Kong, Elim Chan is going places fast: she’s the first female winner of the Donatella Flick Competition, Principal Guest Conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and newly appointed Chief Conductor of the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra. French pianist, Bertrand Chamayou, winner of the prestigious 2019 Gramophone ‘Recording of the Year’, has been described in The Guardian as ‘a remarkable musician, no question.’ Together they bring a vibrant Hungarian themed programme beginning with Brahms’s dances brimful of gypsy verve. Liszt’s First Piano Concerto has all the dazzle expected from the pianist-composer who held audiences spellbound, and folk music also pervades Bartók’s final masterpiece, the virtuosic Concerto for Orchestra in which every section takes a bow.
The Bridgewater Hall applies booking fee of £2.50 per ticket to telephone and online transactions. No fee applies to tickets bought in person or purchased as part of a fixed or flexible subscription.
