Change of soloist
Please note that the role of Bauer will now be performed by James Creswell.
Schoenberg’s retelling of an old Danish legend simply roars. One of the most spectacular works ever written, Gurrelieder is scored for a colossal orchestral and choral ensemble – so vast, in fact, that tonight sees the BBC Philharmonic join forces with the Hallé in order to do it justice. Bringing our 2016-17 season to a close, this very special concert celebrates the 70th birthday of its conductor – Sir Mark Elder, music director of the Hallé and one of British music’s most treasured figures. Don’t miss it.
