R. Strauss - Der Rosenkavalier: Suite
Tchaikovsky - Variations on a Rococo Theme
Dvorák - Symphony No.8

Dalia Stasevska

Kian Soltani, cello

Due to the current situation on Coronavirus, and in the light of Government’s advice given, we have decided to cancel this concert.

Two more brilliant young artists make their Hallé debuts. Hailing from a family of Persian musicians, the playing of Austrian cellist Kian Soltani, has been described in Gramophone magazine as ‘sheer perfection’. He performs Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations, the composer’s lovingly crafted homage to the Classical era, which is preceded by Richard Strauss’s Suite from his most popular opera, Der Rosenkavalier, bringing all the highlights of this ‘comedy with music’ to life. To end, Dvorák’s genial, most Bohemian symphony, a work which he said must be ‘capable of stirring the world’. Conducting is the young Finn, Dalia Stasevska, the newly appointed Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, whose performances have been described as ‘bursting with musical knowledge and energy’.
