Hallé - Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.5
Part of the Hallé's early evening 'Rush Hour' weekday concerts. An hour of inspiring music, performed by world-class musicians, in one of Europe’s most acclaimed concert halls. If you’re not quite ready to go home after the concert, just stay a little longer.
Alpesh Chauhan, Music Director of Birmingham Opera Company, returns to conduct Manchester's oldest orchestra. A rising star, "this was a strong debut", The Times commented about his Hallé concert last year.
Composer Thomas Adès’ residency with the Hallé is launched with his Powder Her Face:Three-Piece Suite, drawn from his brilliant comic opera, Powder Her Face. Its plot centres around Margaret, Duchess of Argyll, whose notorious sex life, exposed during her divorce proceeding in 1963, caused a scandal.
Scattered with witty allusions to waltzes, foxtrots and tangos, Adès composed a score "boiling with life" (The Sunday Times).
Fate and the inscrutable design of Providence dominate Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.5, which he translated into a powerful work, often turbulent, but ultimately transformative. Its slow movement is blessed with one of the most glorious horn solos in the entire orchestral repertoire.
After the concert, music in the foyer with students from Chetham’s School of Music.
