The Hallé
Sir Mark ElderConductor
Hong XuPiano

Sir Mark conducts Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony and whilst it might be unfinished, its two movements form one of the most beautiful and satisfying musical experiences of them all. Hong Xu is not just a pianist of dazzling technique but a musician of great subtlety and insight. He performs Mozart’s B flat major Piano Concerto, written for the blind pianist and composer Maria Theresia von Paradis. Its two lively outer movements frame exquisite variations on a theme. Mendelssohn’s symphonic homage to Scotland evokes the atmosphere of Edinburgh’s Holyrood Palace, misty glens, magnificent mountains and the country’s distinctive folk music.
