Roaring jubilation and radiant beauty from Elder and the Hallé

Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances, Op. 45
Ravel Piano Concerto in G major
Stravinsky Firebird Suite (1945)

To round off the International Concert Series, the Hallé makes a welcome return to the NCH with its esteemed Music Director Sir Mark Elder. Founded in 1858 the Hallé ranks among the UK’s top symphonic ensembles and under the guidance of Sir Mark Elder since 2000 it has reached new heights of artistic achievement.

Multi-award winning British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor has been described as “one in a million...several million” by The Independent. Benjamin first came to prominence as the winner of the Keyboard Final of the 2004 BBC Young Musician of the Year Competition, and was subsequently invited to perform at the First Night of the BBC Proms, aged just nineteen. He has since received numerous awards including Gramophone’s Young Artist of the Year and a Classic Brits Critics’ award, as well as being featured in two BBC television documentaries and in CNN’s Human to Hero series.

For the closing programme in the season we hear three great works from the first half of the 20th century: Rachmaninov’s final orchestral work, a valedictory nostalgic masterpiece written in 1940; Ravel’s jazz influenced Piano Concerto completed in 1931; and Stravinsky’s final re-working in 1945 of his first masterwork, The Firebird, originally composed for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes in 1910.
