Halle Orchestra

Complete performance

Monday 28 March 2005 19:30-21:30 (Radio 3)

From Manchester's Bridgewater Hall, The Halle Orchestra begin with Stravinsky's elephantine Circus Polka, under their assistant conductor Andre de Ridder.

The orchestra are then joined by celebrity percussionists for a rare performance of Erik Satie's extraordinary ballet, Parade.

Music Director, Mark Elder, then takes the reins for the world premiere of Mark-Anthony Turnage's Riffs and Refrains, with clarinettist Michael Collins as the soloist.

The last two pieces in the concert follow a sporting theme - Debussy's tennis love match, Jeux, and excerpts from Shostakovich's exciting football-based ballet, The Golden Age.

Presented by Louise Fryer.

Duration:

2 hours
