Borodin, Radio 3, Live in Concert
Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé bring us an all-Russian programme, live from the Bridgewater Hall
Another fun-filled evening in the company of Hallé and Sir Mark Elder, live from Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall. Listeners will be treated to Borodin’s Prince Igor and his Symphony No. 2, but it isn’t just Russia’s composers being showcased this evening: the orchestra is joined by pianist Sofya Gulyak, the first female winner of the Leeds International Piano Competition. She will perform Tchaikovsky’s lively Concert Fantasy, Op. 86, followed by the rousing 1812 Overture.
