Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky – Symphony No. 6 in B minor, ‘Pathétique’(45 mins)

Join us for our 2023-24 season launch as Chief Conductor John Storgårds sets the stage with Janáček’s gargantuan Sinfonietta.
Brimming with brass and bold yet bridled melodies, its galvanising energy plays foil to the emotional outpourings of Tchaikovsky’s swan song, his Sixth Symphony. Premiered only days before the composer’s death, the Symphony remains an enigma – its only truly agreeable mark, its sheer passion. Separating both of these titanic works, Dame Sarah Connolly joins us for an exploration of some of history’s less well-trodden territory in a collection of Alma Mahler’s orchestrated songs.

Musicians and storytellers come together to consider the impact of climate change in an evocative programme of words and music.

NW Live Arts’ dynamic musicians explore the sounds of our planet – music of the air, sea, sky, forests and landscapes – in a programme of Bach, Bartok and Messiaen, free improvisation, new composition and music from West Africa and South Korea. Sharing the stage, creative storytellers from the local community join the musical conversation asking us to value our connections to nature and find a way to let the planet restore.

“I’m delighted that NW Live Arts has created a mission to actively create platforms where social themes and ideas can be delivered in engaging ways – directly into the hearts of communities by talented artists and musicians.”
