The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester
Tickets (including booking fees): Adults £12.50; Concessions £10; Students and under 5s £5.50
Sibelius - Finlandia
Andrzej Panufnik - Sinfonia Sacra
Sibelius - Symphony No.5
Ellie Slorach, the Hallé Youth Orchestra’s new Director, opens the concert with Sibelius’s stirring tribute to his homeland and closes it with the composer’s Fifth Symphony, which ends triumphantly, the swinging phrases of his ‘Swan Hymn’ ringing out in life-affirming fashion. Andrzej Panufnik’s third symphony is an expression of his patriotic and religious feelings, very much Polish in its character.
