Our first dip into the melting-pot of the Americas brings the Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas evoking Afro-Caribbean ritual in Sensemayá. His highly original orchestral palette had impressed Copland, whose ‘El Salón México’ arose from his fascination with the country, its culture and its sound-world during the 1930s. Kathryn Stott makes a welcome return to the Hallé with Gershwin’s Piano Concerto. Written in the wake of Rhapsody in Blue, it embraces classical and jazz styles with sophisticated ease. Of all the great ballets to come out of Diaghilev’s stable, Falla’s masterly score to The Three Cornered Hat is one of the most colourful.
