The Hallé - The Tsar, The Rock and The Firebird on Thursday 22nd July 2021

Rimsky-Korsakov The Tale of Tsar Saltan: Suite
Rachmaninov The Rock
Stravinsky The Firebird: Suite (1945)

Sir Mark Elder Conductor

For the finale of their Summer Season, Sir Mark leads the Hallé in a spectacular Russian programme, beginning with Rimsky-Korsakov’s suite, or ‘Little Pictures’, from his fairy-tale opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan. They are, Sir Mark comments, ‘full of lovely tunes’ and show the composer’s ‘wonderful ear for orchestral colour, and theatricality.’

Rachmaninov was only 20 when he composed his brooding, atmospheric The Rock, inspired by a Chekhov story, yet it already demonstrates his mastery of the orchestra.

Stravinsky’s The Firebird is drawn from Russian folklore; imbued with the composers own personality, he displays a natural flair for composing ballet as exemplified by the vibrant ‘Dance of the Firebird’ and the thrilling ‘Infernal Dance’.

Also broadcast at from Thursday 29 July
