Nottingham Classics - The Hallé Gala Concert

Nottingham Classics is a great concert series that brings some of the worlds best musicians for all to enjoy.

If people would like to arrange to sit together, please add comments below. We could schedule an event to book tickets beforehand.

Sir Mark Elder conductor
Simon Trpceski piano

Elgar Cockaigne Listen
Grieg Piano Concerto Listen
Dvořák Scherzo Capriccioso
Janáček Sinfonietta Listen

This gala evening celebrates the achievements of the Hallé as our resident orchestra over the past ten years, beginning with Elgar's overture, Cockaigne described by the composer as 'cheerful and Londony, "stout and steaky"'. Then we're off to Norway, with Grieg's passionate Piano Concerto performed by the phenomenal Macedonian pianist Simon Trpceski.

Dvořák's jovial Scherzo Capriccioso was written whilst the composer was enjoying the first fruits of success before his compatriot, Janáček, provides the festive finale. His Sinfonietta is much loved as a vibrant orchestral spectacular, its ripe Slavic sound amplified by a muscular line up of twelve trumpets.

Free pre-concert talk, 6.30pm in the auditorium:
Geoffrey Owen, the Hallé's Head of Artistic Planning, in conversation.

    Hi James, online the seating plan there only appears to be about 60 seats left for this concert. I have not booked mine yet (as ideally do not want to sit on my own) but don't want to miss out on getting a ticket. Have you booked a ticket yet?

    Hi James, I would prefer to sit with the group rather than book a ticket to sit on my own.
