Sibelius - Symphony No.1
Sir Mark Elder
Henning Kraggerud (associate artist), violin
Sir Mark considers Sibelius a singularly important composer for British music-lovers. His music is embedded in the Hallé’s history with Barbirolli, Beecham, Harty and Richter all advocates; Sibelius himself conducted the orchestra in 1931. In the Hallé’s and Sir Mark’s second Sibelius cycle, join them as they explore all the symphonies one by one, alongside magnificent tone poems, and works for violin and orchestra. Their fellow collaborator is one of the Hallé’s Associate Artists, Henning Kraggerud, who plays the Violin Concerto with its poignant, unforgettable opening. The Hallé gave the UK premiere of Night Ride and Sunrise, which arose from Sibelius’s exhilaration when riding through nocturnal forests, then witnessing dawn. The dramatic First Symphony, already a totally individual statement from the 33-year old composer, initiates the symphonic journey.
