DateWednesday 9th October 2019 to Sunday 13th October 2019
DescriptionDebussy - Prelude a l'apres-midi d'un faune Bizet - L'Arlesienne Suite No.1 Elgar - Symphony No.1 Conductor: Sir Mark Elder The prospect of Sir Mark conducting Elgar's First Symphony, a work so deeply associated with the Halle since its premiere by the Orchestra and Hans Richter in 1908, guarantees a major highlight of the season. Elgar said that at its heart it expressed 'a wide experience of human life with great charity (love) and a massive hope in the future'. Richter regarded it as 'the greatest symphony of modern times, and not only in this country'. A French first half combines Debussy's languid, sensuous evocation of the desires and dreams of a Faun, with Bizet's first L'Arlesienne Suite, brim full of the melodic gifts that characterise the composer of Carmen.
