The BBC Philharmonic and the Hallé’s joint Beethoven celebrations tonight present the second part of a unique exchange programme on the podium.Following Ben Gernon’s appearance with the Hallé on 28 February, Sir Mark Elder, the Hallé’s Music Director, returns the favour, conducting the BBC Philharmonic for one night only in Beethoven’s sumptuous ‘Pastoral’ Symphony. It’s the highlight of a concert that also includes Beethoven’s 10th Symphony, assembled by Manchester professor Barry Cooper from the composer’s sketches, and the Choral Fantasy, which anticipates Beethoven’s epic Ninth Symphony in joyful and celebratory fashion.
