Tianyi Lu

Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano

With commissions galore, from the BBC Proms to the Chicago Symphony, British-born/USA based, Anna Clyne has established a reputation as ‘a composer of uncommon gifts’ (New York Times). In This Midnight Hour, she responds to poems by Jiménez and Baudelaire in music combining high-octane energy and waltzing tenderness. Since last with the Hallé, Tianyi Lu has won First Prize in the prestigious Sir George Solti International Conductors’ Competition, whilst Isata Kanneh-Mason, made her impressive Hallé debut last season. A passionate advocate of Clara Schumann’s music, she’ll be giving the Hallé’s first performance of her virtuosic concerto. Schoenberg’s admiration for Brahms is evident throughout his orchestral take on the latter’s G minor Piano Quartet. In the barn-storming finale, with its typically Brahmsian gypsy fireworks, Schoenberg gives the percussionists a field day.
