Hallé Youth Choir

In the Hallé’s final contribution to the Beethoven cycle, the young American/Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra makes her debut. Already well established through visits to major orchestras in the States and Europe, she’s Music Director of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

Antje Weithaas’s interpretation of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto is renowned for its wonderful artistry: ‘virtuosic and animated, technically flawless, with breathtakingly intensity’ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung). Another choral rarity, Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage, sets Goethe’s verses, and was dedicated to the towering man of letters. Although the First Symphony reveals Beethoven’s indebtedness to Haydn and Mozart, its fusion of lyricism and propulsive energy is indelibly stamped with his personality.
