The Hallé
Sir Mark ElderConductor
Sergio Castelló LópezClarinet

These delectable concerts add French dressing to Spanish, American and Russian ingredients. The Hallé’s principal clarinettist Sergio Castelló López is soloist in Debussy’s Rhapsody. It ends with a joyful celebration of the home of jazz, New Orleans. Either side of this are two Ravel works celebrating Spain and its great dance traditions. The famous Boléro is a masterpiece of orchestration and dramatic pacing, while the vibrant Rapsodie espagnole equally evokes the spirit of Iberia. Ravel’s genius, in his peerless version of Pictures at an Exhibition takes Mussorgsky’s vivid sound-pictures far beyond the original artworks which inspired them.
