The Hallé

Sir Mark Elder conductor | Paul Lewis piano

Paul Lewis is internationally recognised as one of the leading pianists of his generation. An acclaimed interpreter of the classical repertoire, here he performs Mozart’s exquisite A major concerto. Although clouds occasionally darken the Mozartian sky, the work is largely a sunny affair, particularly its ebullient finale.

The concert begins with a new piece by the Hallé’s Associate Composer Helen Grime, while after the interval Sir Mark conducts Mahler’s First Symphony. This remarkable work begins with bird-calls and distant military fanfares before proceeding via a wonderfully rustic Ländler and an evocation of a Jewish funeral to its inspirational, life-affirming conclusion.
