Songs of the World on Thursday 28th November 2019

Webern String Quartet, Op.28
Cheryl Frances-Hoad The Whole Earth Dances
Athanasia Kontou After Psappha
Alissa Firsova Songs of the World world premiere
Lutyens The Valley of Hatsu-Se
Schoenberg, arr. Webern Chamber Symphony No.1

The first concert at the newly renovated Hallé St Peter’s features a Psappha commission inspired by the Vienna of a century ago. Alissa Firsova’s Songs of the World sets three poems by Hugo van Hofmannsthal – a contemporary of Anton Webern, whose abstract but gripping String Quartet and masterful arrangement of Schoenberg’s Chamber Symphony both feature tonight. Poetry also provides the inspiration for Elizabeth Lutyens’ rarely-heard The Valley of Hatsu-Se, which draws on Japanese texts, and Cheryl Frances-Hoad’s more recent The Whole Earth Dances, inspired in part by Ted Hughes.

Stephen Barlow Conductor
Daisy Brown Soprano
