Prokofiev – Piano Concerto No.2
Sibelius – Symphony No.5
Anton Mejias, piano
This is your chance to experience something new. An hour of inspiring music, performed by world-class musicians, in one of Europe’s most acclaimed concert halls. For one night only, you can get all this for just £10 (or £2 if you are in full-time education).
The Hallé is very excited to welcome the young Finnish conductor Tarmo Peltokoski, a star on an astronomical rise, who directs and presents this rush hour concert. He welcomes to The Bridgewater Hall stage his fellow countryman, Anton Mejias, who performs Prokofiev’s brilliant, breathtaking Second Piano Concerto. Sibelius’s theatrical and triumphant Fifth Symphony ends with one of the greatest finales of all time: its ‘Swan Hymn’ rings out in life-affirming glory.
Don’t rush home – buy your tickets now and spend an hour with the Hallé.
