Sheffield City Hall, Sheffield

From £17.92, Student Tickets £5.60 (inc. booking fees)

Sibelius - Lemminkäinen's Return
Dvorák - Cello Concerto
Brahms - Symphony No. 4

Karl-Heinz Steffens

Laura van der Heijden, Cello

The Hallé opens the concert season with Laura van der Heijden and Karl-Heinz Steffens for what is simply the greatest cello concerto of them all, that of Dvorák. Packed with both melodies and virtuosity, when Brahms heard it for the first time he was astonished, wishing he could have written it himself.

After the interval is Brahms’s Fourth Symphony, his greatest achievement in orchestral music. Its finale, a magnificent set of variations, is perhaps the most remarkable part of this most remarkable and moving work. The concert begins with the rousing homecoming of Sibelius’s legendary hero, Lemminkäinen’s Return.
