The Hallé - Elgar's Massive Hope on Thursday 10th October 2019

Debussy - Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune
Bizet - L’Arlésienne Suite No.1
Elgar - Symphony No.1

Andrew Manze

The prospect of Andrew Manze conducting Elgar’s First Symphony, a work so deeply associated with the Hallé since its premiere by the Orchestra and Hans Richter in 1908, guarantees a major highlight of the season. Elgar said that at its heart it expressed ‘a wide experience of human life with great charity (love) and a massive hope in the future’. Richter regarded it as ‘the greatest symphony of modern times, and not only in this country’. A French first half combines Debussy’s languid, sensuous evocation of the desires and dreams of a Faun, with Bizet’s first L’Arlésienne Suite, brim full of the melodic gifts that characterise the composer of Carmen.
