The Hallé in Kendal: October 2018


Saturday 20th October 2018

Kendal Leisure Centre, Kendal

Tickets from £21 (concessions available)

Purcell (orch. Manze for wind and brass) - Fantasia upon one note
Dvorák - Cello Concerto
Vaughan Williams - A London Symphony

Andrew Manze

Jian Wang, cello

This spectacular concert has a very British theme. An intriguing fantasia by Purcell is in splendid new colours, thanks to the concert’s conductor. Dvorak’s glorious Cello Concerto was written in America but first performed in London. Finally Vaughan Williams’s second symphony captures the essence of Edwardian London with its Westminster Chimes, the cry of lavender sellers, the jingling harnesses of hansom cabs and the mouth organ of the Cockneys. Vaughan Williams also cites Bloomsbury Square, The Strand and the mighty Thames as the inspiration for his London Symphony. This concert will be conducted by Andrew Manze featuring soloist Jian Wang.
