Brahms’s Violin Concerto

The Bridgewater Hall, Manchester

From £13 (including booking fee)

Ravel - Mother Goose Suite
Haydn - Symphony No.88
Brahms - Violin Concerto

Ryan Wigglesworth

Viviane Hagner, Violin

Principal Guest Conductor of the Hallé, Ryan Wigglesworth, conducts the lovely Mother Goose – five ‘fairytale’ pieces Ravel originally composed for the children of two friends. With Tom Thumb, Beauty and the Beast and nodding toy figures, Ravel leads us into an enchanting sound-world. German violinist Viviane Hagner always leaves a lasting impression. In these concerts she performs Brahms’s lyrical and masterfully constructed Violin Concerto. Brahms wrote it in a relaxed holiday mood as he savoured the stunning natural beauties of Carinthia. The work ends with a spirited Hungarian-style finale. Haydn’s G major symphony is one of the composer’s most concise, brilliant and humorous creations.
