Karina Canellakis

Sunwook Kim, piano

Praised internationally for her technical and musical gifts, in 2016 Karina Canellakis won the prestigious Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award. She is joined by Hallé favourite Sunwook Kim for Brahms’s monumental First Piano Concerto, an absolute tour de force of the repertoire and a piece he has recorded with the orchestra. Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is now a Hallé party piece that thrills audiences whenever they hear it. The programme sets sail with Mendelssohn’s evocative Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage. Inspired by both the poetry of Goethe and the music of Beethoven, it’s one of the greatest of all musical seascapes.
