A rare chance to hear Bradford-born Delius’ lyrical and fascinatingly textured impression of the French capital. His first developed orchestral masterpiece is followed by Ravel’s jazz-influenced piano concerto; the three movement work is full of rhythmically exciting passages, beautiful melodies and energising dissonant harmonies.
Elgar’s arrangement of Bach’s Fantasia and Fugue in C minor, orchestrated as a way to help him through the grief of losing his wife, is a haunting contrast to the English composer’s famous Enigma Variations. The engima of the variations is still unknown, and continues to tease musicians even today, whilst the fourteen musical pictures characterise the composer’s wife, friends and even himself in music.
Amongst the world’s top symphonic ensembles, The Hallé makes a welcome return to the Leeds International Orchestral Season.
