The Hallé’s own Stéphane Rancourt plays Richard Strauss’s Oboe Concerto, replete with autumnal colours of the great Romantic composer’s so-called ‘Indian summer’ years. British conductor, Jonathan Nott is Music Director of the Suisse Romande and Tokyo Symphony orchestras, having established a widespread European reputation for exciting music-making.
Mozart’s Symphony No.39 is the sunniest of the magnificent final set of symphonies written by Mozart in a white heat of inspiration during the summer of 1788. Writing at dazzling speed and under the spell of almost supernatural inspiration, he produced this glorious work, packed with tunes and marvellous orchestral harmonies.
Schubert, while composing his own Fifth Symphony, was in thrall to Mozart’s genius, writing in his diary ‘O Mozart! Immortal Mozart! What countless impressions of a brighter, better life hast thou stamped upon our souls!’ Like his hero’s music, Schubert’s symphony is filled with melodic invention.
Now in its 162nd season and one of the world’s top symphonic ensembles, the Hallé continues to seek ways to enhance and refresh what it’s offering, with aspirations to provide leadership through performance standards, education, understanding and training.
