Sheffield International Concert Season 2021/2022

Hallé Artist in Association, Ryan Wigglesworth, conducts a programme centred around his Piano Concerto, premiered at the 2019 BBC Proms by another ever welcome Hallé guest, Marc-André Hamelin, dubbed by the New York Times as ‘A performer of near-superhuman technical prowess’. Of Mozartian Classical proportions, Wigglesworth describes his concerto’s four movements as ‘studies in character’, at its heart an intimate ‘Notturno’, based on a Polish folksong he first heard around a campfire.

Among critical plaudits, The Times lauded Wigglesworth’s ‘conjuror’s ability to cast a spell’. The concert opens with characters embroiled in Midsummer mayhem as portrayed in Mendelssohn’s magical score to Shakespeare’s play. Schumann’s Second Symphony is a journey from darkness to light, consciously emulating Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, composed after serious illness and enshrining the composer’s love for his wife Clara.

Customers attending this event are invited to join the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus and their director Darius Battiwalla from 9.15pm for a special After Hours concert in the City Hall Ballroom after the Hallé concert. The Chorus will perform a selection of American pieces by Copland and Barber which will show off the outstanding versatility of this exceptional mixed-voice chorus. This is a free event but ticketed event with tickets limited to a maximum of 4 per person which must be booked at the time of purchasing your tickets to this Hallé - A Midsummer Night's Dream performance. Tickets will not be available on the night and must be booked at the time of your tickets to the 7.30pm Hallé performance.
