Undisputedly one of the world’s consummate pianists, Garrick Ohlsson returns to the Hallé, bringing his penetrating insight to Rachmaninov’s Paganini Rhapsody, renowned for the lush romanticism of its 18th variation. A familiar figure to Hallé audiences, Nicholas Collon, begins the concert with two atmospheric tone poems based on the exploits of the hero of the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala. After The Firebird’s success, Diaghilev wanted another sure-fire winner, which Stravinsky delivered in Pétrouchka, his ballet about the puppet hero of Russian folklore. Cast in glowing orchestral colours, it culminates in the Shrovetide Fair with vivid dances for drunken revellers, a tethered bear, coachmen and even the Devil in disguise.
