Hallé St Peter’s, 40 Blossom Street, Ancoats Manchester M4 6BF

Psappha Ensemble

Molly Joyce – Rave (UK première)

Anna Clyne – Steelworks

Sarah Kirkland Snider – Penelope*

Richard Balcombe – conductor*
Jessica Walker – vocalist*
Psappha Ensemble

Three striking works from brilliant US-based composers.

A woman’s husband appears at her door after an absence of twenty years. A veteran of an unnamed war, he doesn’t know who he is and she doesn’t know who he’s become. While they wait together for his return to himself, she reads him the Odyssey, and in the journey of that book she finds a way into his memory and the terror and trauma of war. Suspended somewhere between art song, indie rock, and chamber folk, the music of Penelope moves from moments of elegiac reflection to dusky post-rock textures in a meditation on memory, identity, and what it means to come home.

Rave gives the impression of impossible virtuosity, transforming the piano into a multi-dimensional piano/organ hybrid. Giving a fascinating glimpse into a disappearing world, the music of Steelworks interacts with film and with recorded interviews of employees at the last steelworks factory in Brooklyn.

Virginia Black harpsichord

Haydn Symphony No. 49 in F minor La Passione
Bach Concerto No. 4 in A, BWV 1055
Mozart Divertimento in F, K138
Bach Concerto No. 1 in D minor, BWV 1052

The Bristol Ensemble
Virginia Black piano

After a dazzling international career as a virtuoso harpsichordist, Virginia Black has turned full circle and returned to her roots as a pianist. Having played the Bach concertos on the harpsichord, Virginia has now teamed with the Bristol Ensemble, known for its work with outstanding international artists and soloists, to reprise the concertos on the piano. The Bristol Ensemble will perform as a small chamber orchestra for this concert, providing the perfect foil for the piano.

The contrast between the powerful and expressive D minor concerto and the exuberant passion of the A major concerto will provide a fascinating demonstration of the power of Bach’s mastery of the concerto format. Together, they form an exquisite demonstration of Baroque ensemble music–making. The evening will also include the Bristol Ensemble playing works by Haydn, the dark hued Symphony No. 49 and Mozart’s graceful and charming Divertimento in F major.

‘Virginia Black is a communicative artist, extrovert, colourful, spontaneous but with a deep sense of poetry.’ Gramophone
‘Black’s intimate style… yields arresting results… lilting, relaxed and gorgeously inflected.’ Gramophone

Marin Alsop

Beethoven Symphony No. 4
Beethoven Violin Concerto

Marin Alsop conductor
Nicola Benedetti violin

A musician always confounding expectations, violinist Nicola Benedetti performs with the OAE for the first time in this concert.

She’s joined by conductor Marin Alsop for a programme of Beethoven performed with pure unvarnished musicality.

Sandwiched between the complex Third Symphony and the iconic Fifth, Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony is a gentler, more intimate affair that harks back to older music and shows the distinct influence of Haydn.

Written in the same year as the Fourth Symphony, Beethoven’s only Violin Concerto was one of the first pieces written for the instrument on a large scale.

Enjoy this exploration of the variety of Beethoven’s music with two artists of international distinction.

Mozart Arias from La clemenza di Tito
Mozart Symphony No. 38
Haydn Scena di Berenice
Haydn Symphony No. 103 Drumroll

Ádám Fischer conductor
Stephanie d’Oustrac mezzo-soprano

What wins – love or duty?

Berenice is Queen of Palestine, set to marry the Roman Emperor Titus. But a change of political weather at home makes it impossible for the Emperor to marry a foreign queen. What wins out – love or duty?

Haydn turned this story into Scena de Berenice, a fabulous concert aria (classical music’s equivalent of the short story) told from the Queen’s perspective. As political wheels keep turning, how does she hold her own in increasingly hostile corridors of power?

A packed programme also explores Mozart’s great operas about power, La Clemenza di Tito.

Mezzo-soprano Stephanie d’Oustrac sings Berenice, while we’re joined once again by Ádám Fischer, one of the leading interpreters of Haydn’s music operating today.

There is more to Mozart than meets the eye.

His repertoire is full of surprises and deceptions.

Mozart was the ultimate musical genius – and the ultimate game player. He tore up the rulebook, and if you hear his music twice, you never have quite the same experience.

Join the OAE to explore the hidden secrets of Mozart’s familiar scores, led by the Orchestra’s longstanding collaborator, violinist Rachel Podger. She plays two of Mozart’s great violin concertos, which are both unique in their own ways.

Also enjoy an exhilarating but rarely performed symphony by Johann Christian Bach. The son of Johann Sebastian Bach, JC Bach was a celebrity in London in the 1770s. This Symphony in G Minor is his dramatic, standout work, full of twists and turns and dark passions.
