Manchester’s Hallé is one of the UK’s top symphonic orchestras.

Sir Mark Elder CH CBE, has been its Music Director since 2000 and prior to his appointment has worked with or led many of the world’s leading symphony orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony and Orchestra de Paris. He has an impressive discography, has appeared at the BBC Proms almost every year since 1975 and regularly works in major international opera houses, including Covent Garden, Paris Opéra and the Metropolitan Opera.

Composed over several years during the mid-1940s and first performed in 1948, conducted by Adrian Boult, Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No.6 is an extravagant and imaginative work. Given its timing and the menacing tense opening, many have pondered its connection to the devastation and loss of war, something the composer emphatically denied. But whatever your perspective, Symphony No.6 is a work which ushered in a fruitful and expressive late period for Vaughan Williams, one of the greatest British composers of the 20th century.

Mozart’s Piano Concerto No.23, which side-stepped musical trends of the time, and Sibelius’ transitional Symphony No.3 complete the programme which features rising pianist Elisabeth Brauss. She is the latest recipient of the prestigious Terence Judd Hallé Award, as well as being a BBC New Generation Artist. Brauss has quickly established a reputation as one of the most exciting and versatile musicians of her generation.
