Sir Mark Elder conductor
Richard Wagner Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan and Isolde
Samuel Barber Medea’s Meditation and Dance of Vengeance
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Sleeping Beauty (excerpts)
Sir Mark Elder has been music director of Manchester’s Hallé Orchestra for over two decades now, and their rapport is becoming the stuff of legend. Expect them to soar on the glowing melodies of Tchaikovsky’s greatest ballet score. And expect passion beyond measure, as they dive deep into the intoxicating world of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde and Samuel Barber’s explosive take on a fiery Greek legend. “This is what peak performance sounds like, and it takes decades to achieve” writes The Spectator.
