Borodin - Prince Igor: Polovtsian Dances
Copland - Appalachian Spring: Suite
Dvorák - Symphony No.9, ‘From the New World’
Delyana Lazarova, winner of the first Siemens Hallé International Conductors Competition, begins her tenure with the Hallé with an original programme exploring the old world and the new. After Borodin’s colourful Polovtsian Dances, America becomes the focus, with Copland’s outstanding ballet score Appalachian Spring, in which he totally absorbed the spirit of American hymns, famously quoting one traditional Shaker tune, ‘Simple Gifts’. Dvoˇrák composed his Ninth Symphony when based in New York, his aim being to convey ‘impressions and greetings from the New World’. The symphony abounds with resonances of American music, as in the slow movement, with its haunting, spiritual-like cor anglais theme.
