The Hallé's Elgar Festival concludes with the work the composer wished to be remembered by.
It was here in Manchester, only a stone’s throw from the modern Bridgewater Hall, where Hans Richter gave the first – and by all accounts, highly acclaimed – performance of Elgar’s First Symphony.
The Venezuelan maestro conducts a programme of early 20th-century works with the BBC Philharmonic .
Cristian Măcelaru and the Hallé give exemplary accounts of Fauré's Dolly Suite and Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, whilst Mozart's “Jeunehomme” Concerto with soloist Heejae Kim is variable and lacks instrumetal balance.
A satisfying programme of familiar and unfamiliar works by the BBC Philarhomic under its Principal Guest Conductor.
