Halle back at the Concert Hall

THE Halle make a swift return to the area on Friday, January 20, for a performance under the baton of Sir Mark Elder at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall.

The orchestra will be joined by piano soloist Nelson Goerner for a performance of Ravel’s ingenious, attractive and jazz-tinged Piano Concerto For The Left Hand, written for the Viennese virtuoso Paul Wittgenstein, who lost his right arm in the First World War.

Also on the programme will be Sibelius’s rugged early work En Saga and Beethoven’s Symphony No 6 – The Pastoral, a highly descriptive work and one of his most popular.

Tickets cost £10-£32. Call the box office for more details on 0115 9895555.
