Programme includes:
Shostakovich Symphony No.6 30′

Sir Mark Elder conductor
Euan Shields conductor

Sir Mark and Euan Shields, winner of the 2023 Siemens Hallé International Conductors Competition and Director of the Hallé Youth Orchestra, share the podium to direct the combined forces of the Hallé and Hallé Youth Orchestra.

Shostakovich’s Sixth Symphony is full of contrasts, with the sorrow and desolation of the first movement and the mock exuberance of the second and third, climaxing in a bombastic whirling circus of a finale. This concert will showcase the experience of the Hallé, talent of the Youth Orchestra and the musicianship of both.
