The Orchestral Concert Season opens this month with The Hallé on Saturday 13 November 2021 and continues next year with Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra Moscow, European Union Chamber Orchestra and more concerts from The Hallé. You can once again experience truly great live classical music in St George’s Hall, Bradford.
The first performance by The Hallé is a concert curated around beginnings and endings with Richard Strauss centre-stage, contrasting his teenage Serenade with his swansong, Four Last Songs, which he composed at the age of 84. Couched in glowing autumnal hues by a vocal and orchestral master, they’ll be sung by Welsh soprano Natalya Romaniw. She’s joined by the young German conductor Christian Reif.
The concert opens with Lamia a Straussian symphonic poem, inspired by Keats, written by the 20 year old Dorothy Howell and premiered by Henry Wood at the 1919 Proms. The concert concludes with Mozart’s final symphony, where the contrapuntal wizardry of its finale aptly justifies its regal nickname Jupiter.
Then The Hallé return early next year with it’s popular Viennese New Year Concert on Saturday 8 January 2022 and then the season continues into 2022.
