Tonight we offer a selection of pieces which have always featured prominently in this orchestra’s repertoire – both Elgar and Vaughan Williams entrusted the Hallé with symphonic premieres. We perform Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture and Vaughan Williams’ Tallis Fantasia, as well as a true icon of English music, The Lark Ascending, which is perfectly depicted in the hands of Hallé Leader, Lyn Fletcher. Laurence Olivier described his Oscar-winning film as ‘William’s Henry V’ so central to its success was William Walton’s dazzling score.
*The Hallé Concerts Society is very grateful to Paul Barritt for replacing Lyn Fletcher who has had to withdraw.
