The Hallé
Roderick Williams baritone
Jonathon Heyward conductor

Ryan Wigglesworth Clocks from a Winter’s Tale(UK premiere) (20’)
Mahler Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen (16’)
Tchaikovsky Symphony No 4 (46’)

Hailed by Mark Elder as ‘a bright rising star’, American conductor Jonathon Heyward takes to the Town Hall stage with one of the Music Festival’s long-standing favourites, The Hallé.

Alongside one of the most beloved of romantic symphonies, and Mahler’s ‘songs of a wayfarer’ performed by captivating baritone Roderick Williams, Ryan Wigglesworth’s new work is inspired by themes from his 2017 opera for ENO, The Winter’s Tale, and is a co-commission with The Hallé, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Bergen Philharmonic.

70 Years of The Hallé at Cheltenham Music Festival

5 – 5.45pm
Cheltenham Town Hall Pillar Room

Join us for a pre-concert talk introducing tonight’s performance.

Manchester’s Hallé Orchestra first came to Cheltenham Music Festival 70 years ago in 1947. Their annual residencies with the great John Barbirolli characterised the Festival’s early decades and resulted in dozens of premieres – many of them taking on the subsequently uncoveted, if occasionally inaccurate, title of ‘Cheltenham Symphony’. With archive photographs and selected recordings, Festival Director Meurig Bowen charts The Hallé’s history in Cheltenham, right up until Edward Gardner’s appearance with them in 2009.
