RICHARD STRAUSS Serenade
LUDWIG VAN BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No.3
JEAN SIBELIUS Symphony No.3

Sir Mark Elder CONDUCTOR
Isata Kanneh-Mason PIANO

Under the baton of Sir Mark Elder, the Hallé are joined by virtuoso pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason for Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, before a key early work by Richard Strauss and Sibelius’s magnificent Third Symphony.

Putting the spotlight on the Hallé’s winds and horns, Strauss’s Serenade opens the online concert. Full of lush harmonies and exquisite wind writing, this is the work that brought recognition to Strauss outside of his native Germany, when the composer was just 17 years old.

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 darkly heroic Third Piano Concerto.

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

The concert will be streamed from The Bridgewater Hall, and tickets for online viewing can be purchased via the Hallé’s website.
