Adult from £17
Ravel - Pavane pour une infante defunte
Lalo - Symphonie Espagnole
Brahms - Symphony No. 2
Leticia Moreno, Violin
One of the most versatile and passionate conductors of his generation, Pablo González has quickly established a particularly strong rapport with the players of the Hallé. He is joined tonight by his Spanish compatriot Leticia Moreno, to perform Lalo’s colourful and virtuosic Symphonie espagnole. It is a work that exuberantly depicts the landscapes, people and folk traditions of their native country. González conducts Ravel’s typically elegant and very Gallic Pavane. As Brahms composed his Second Symphony he reported that “melodies flow so freely that one has to be careful not to trample any of them under foot”. Accordingly, it is one of the composer’s most cheerful and genial creations.
Pre-concert talk: Pablo González reflects upon his career and the evening’s performance. The talk will commence on the raked seating at 6.30pm.
