HALLE
Jonathon Heyward conductor and Laurence Rogers horn

Grieg ‘Peer Gynt’ selection from Suites 1 & 2
R. Strauss Horn Concerto no.1 in F major
Sibelius Symphony no.2 in D

The return of the Halle to Kendal always fills audiences with anticipation. This season they bring with them the exceptionally talented young conductor Jonathon Heyward, rated by them as ‘one of the most exciting conductors of his generation’.

The evening opens with a selection from Grieg’s well known music for Peer Gynt, including Morning and In the Hall of the Mountain King, which should set us on track for an evening of intense tunes and exciting rhythms.
Laurence Rogers is the Halle’s choice as soloist in Richard Strauss’ horn concerto which was composed by the teenage Richard as a birthday present for his professional horn playing father’s 60th birthday. It has become one of the most frequently played horn concertos in the repertoire – not bad for a teenager!
Lastly, the Halle play perhaps the most well-known of the Sibelius’ symphonies, the second. Full of the most passionate music, it was written at a time when Finland was seeking freedom from its Russian overlords and has become one of the great classics of the twentieth century. Sibelius himself called it ‘a confession of the soul’ and the emotionally charged build up to the final climatic appearance of the second subject in the last movement will undoubtedly bring the concert to a very satisfying conclusion.

Everyone is welcome. There is a free parking, a free programme, a free optional talk before the concert at 6.30pm, a bar to quench your thirst and students and children only pay £5.

For more information please visit the website. Booking is advised as this concert is expected to be a sell-out.
