Conductor
Tabita Berglund

Choir:
Ladies of the Hallé Choir

Due to the current situation on Coronavirus, and in the light of Government’s advice given, we have decided to cancel this event.

A natural communicator, the gifted young Norwegian, Tabita Berglund, impressed the Hallé audiences on her first visit to the orchestra last season. She returns to conduct two enduring early 20th-century masterpieces. The impetus for Debussy’s impressionistic three symphonic sketches, La mer, were the seascapes of Turner and the art of the Japanese painter Hokusai. It wasn’t astronomy that was the wellspring of Holst’s The Planets, but astrology, which he explored through a suite of deftly imagined movements including: an apocalyptic vision of Mars, ‘The God of War’; the bluff humour of Jupiter, ‘The Bringer of Jollity’; Uranus, ‘the Magician’ and the dust and ashes of Saturn, ‘the Bringer of Old Age.’
