Concert Information

Richard Strauss once boasted that he could depict even a knife and fork in music. So when he set out to depict the full majesty of the Bavarian Alps, the results are...well, hear for yourself as the BBC Philharmonic and the Halle Orchestra join forces to storm the very summit of Strauss's mighty Alpine Symphony.

Waterfalls, glaciers, an ear-splitting storm - the views are spectacular! But Juanjo Mena will find an extra dimension in Strauss's vast hymn to nature, and send thrills tingling down your spine in the wonderfully over-the-top Festival Prelude. Amidst all this grandeur, enjoy a moment of quiet poetry in Strauss's beautiful songs Op.44; the latest discovery in our shared Manchester-wide exploration of these neglected, deeply romantic masterpieces.
