The Hallé - Homage to Schubert on Sunday 26th March 2023

Beethoven- Piano Concerto No.5, ‘Emperor’
Dobrinka Tabakova- Fantasy homage to Schubert
Schubert- Symphony No.8, ‘Unfinished’

Tabita Berglund

Håvard Gimse, piano

After Tabita Berglund’s Hallé visit last season,The Guardianpraised her for the ‘smiling warmth’ and ‘boundless energy’ of the performances. She’s joined by fellow Norwegian, Håvard Gimse, whose awards include the Grieg, Sibelius andDiapason d’orprizes. He makes his Hallé debut with Beethoven’s ‘Emperor’ Concerto, a work succinctly described by Alfred Brendel as having a ‘grand and radiant vision, a noble vision of freedom’. Dobrinka Tabakova’s tribute to Schubert arose from the opening of his Fantasy for violin and piano with its ‘really delicate kind of shimmer and tremor’, then the ‘absolute heavenly melody’ arising from it. Although ‘Unfinished’, what remains of Schubert’s Eighth Symphony is sheer perfection, as the critic Hanslick instinctively recognised: ‘everywhere the same warmth, the same golden sunshine that makes the buds grow.’
