Undoubtedly one of the season’s highlights: this concert features the hugely anticipated Hallé debut of Sheku Kanneh-Mason. Completing a dream team of artists to perform Beethoven’s ‘Triple’ Concerto, Benjamin Grosvenor is no stranger to Hallé audiences, together with virtuosic violinist, Hyeyoon Park. Dalia Stasevska, Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, also makes her debut with the Hallé, framing the concert with music by Sibelius; the youthful Karelia Suite and the Seventh Symphony, his taut final word of symphonic mastery. The works of Swedish composer Andrea Tarrodi have been described by BBC Music Magazine as having ‘a powerful emotional core’ as in her Paradisfåglar, ‘inspired by BBC Planet Earth films about the strange and beautiful birds of paradise, their many different colours, the way they fly, sound and sing’.

We are very sorry to announce that Nicola Benedetti will be unable to perform as part of the Beethoven Triple Concerto this Friday, as a result of illness. The Hallé is very grateful to Hyeyoon Park for stepping in at short notice.

Hyeyoon, who will join Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Benjamin Grosvenor for the Triple Concerto, has been described as an artist of outstanding virtuosity, combining effortlessly rich sonority with musical integrity.

We are pleased that the programme remains the same and look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be an exceptional concert.
