The Hallé - Grieg’s Lyrical Masterwork on Sunday 10th November 2019
Grieg - Lyric Suite
Grieg - Piano Concerto
Sibelius - Symphony No.1
Andrew Tyson, piano
Among Grieg’s staunch advocates was Tchaikovsky, admiring the ‘teeming vitality’ in the Norwegian’s music, qualities that abound in his Lyric Suite and Piano Concerto. Since winning the 2012 Terence Judd-Hallé Orchestra Prize at the Leeds International Piano Competition, Andrew Tyson has delighted Hallé audiences many times. Described as ‘a real poet of the piano’ by BBC Radio 3, Grieg’s lyrical masterwork suits him down to the ground and, naturally, the composer courses in the veins of Norwegian conductor and rising talent, Tabita Berglund. Tchaikovsky also cast his shadow on Sibelius, who commented to his wife that ‘There is much in that man I recognise in myself’; his benign influence is apparent in Sibelius’s First Symphony, especially in its impassioned soaring melodies.
