The Hallé with Dalia Stasevska (conductor) and Kian Soltani (cello)

Friday, April 3, 2020 - 19:00

The brilliant and dynamic Dalia Stasevska directs the Hallé in the company of Kian Soltani, one of the finest cellists of his generation. The first half features two works in which composers looked back to the past for inspiration. Both Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier and Tchaikovsky’s Rococo Variations evoke the 18th century to beautiful and opulent effect.

Dvorák’s magnificent Eighth Symphony reflects his love of the Bohemian countryside and nowhere is his remarkable inventiveness more in evidence than in this magnificent piece, a work he composed with the melodies “just pouring out”, as he put it. And pour out they most certainly do!

Pre-concert talk with BBC Broadcaster Trisha Cooper starts at 6pm.
