Sibelius - Symphony No.3

Sir Mark Elder

Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano

Putting the spotlight on the Hallé’s winds and horns, Richard Strauss’s Serenade, written when he was just 17, announced a composer with a precocious command of instrumental writing. A keenly-awaited Hallé debut follows: Isata Kanneh-Mason is the eldest of the outstanding seven young musicians of Britain’s most remarkable musical family. She’s been described by BBC Music Magazine as ‘a pianist who makes lines sing beautifully and virtuosic passages dance’, as doubtless will be heard in Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto.

Sibelius is a composer embedded in the DNA of the Hallé, its players, conductors and audience, in a tradition that stretches back to Richter, continuing through Harty and Barbirolli to Sir Mark today. Sibelius’s Third Symphony banishes all late-Romantic echoes of his first two symphonies creating a beautifully proportioned, concise and classically poised work.
