Opera is in Daniele Rustioni’s bloodstream, as will doubtless be evident in Verdi’s dramatic curtain-raiser to his Sicilian Vespers. Heejae Kim, holder of the 2015 Terence Judd-Hallé Orchestra Prize, is a wonderful musician, whose visits are eagerly anticipated. She’s heard, together with the Hallé’s own Gareth Small, in Shostakovich’s exciting First Piano Concerto, whose energetic Finale always brings the house down. Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony is haunted by a recurring theme synonymous with Fate; among its inspired gems is the slow movement’s glorious main tune, renowned as among the great moments for solo horn in the repertoire.
