Nelson Goerner plays Mozart, Schumann and Schubert at Wigmore Hall

How radical can an exposition repeat be? Well, in the hands of Schubert, very radical indeed, it turns out. The sheer scale of the Molto moderato which opens his final piano sonata means that by the time the opening material returns a huge swathe of time has passed, so much so that each re-encountered phrase is seen in the light of all that happened in the mean time.

The Hallé and Sir Mark Elder: Beethoven 6

Mark Elder,  ©  Simon Dodd
The Pastoral Symphony is perhaps an optimistic choice for January in Manchester, but for a short while all memory of the deluge outside evaporated in the Bridgewater Hall.Olivier Messiaen’s suite L’Ascension opened the concert with serene, otherworldly modality in a masterfully sculpted brass chorale. The horn section, unusually, played the first half of the concert seated with the rest of the brass section stage left, which made for tight ensemble and a pure, focused sound, always well intoned and led by brilliant trumpet playing. The dissonances of Messiaen’s distinctive idiom were embraced throughout; never grotesque, but elusive and ethereal, well judged in balance and pacing by conductor Sir Mark Elder.
