Dorothy Howell - Lamia: Symphonic Poem
Richard Strauss - Four Last Songs
Richard Strauss - Serenade in E-Flat Major, Op. 7
Mozart - Symphony No.41, K.551, C major, Jupiter
Natalya Romaniw, soprano
A concert curated around beginnings and endings with Richard Strauss centre-stage, contrasting his teenage Serenade with his swansong, Four Last Songs, composed aged 84. Couched in glowing autumnal hues by a vocal and orchestral master, they’ll be sung by Welsh soprano Natalya Romaniw, last with the Hallé in Manchester in 2016 when she thrilled concert-goers in Beethoven’s Ninth. She’s joined by the young German conductor Christian Reif, a Hallé newcomer, whose career has developed apace in the States when Resident Conductor of the San Francisco Symphony. To start, Lamia is a Straussian symphonic poem, inspired by Keats, written by the 20-year-old Dorothy Howell and premiered by Henry Wood at the 1919 Proms. The concert concludes with Mozart’s final symphony, where the contrapuntal wizardry of its finale aptly justifies its regal nickname – ‘Jupiter’.
This event is managed by Bradford St George’s Hall.
