Stephen Bell conductor | Hallé Choir Matthew Hamilton, Choral Director

As the great John Williams, the most Oscar-nominated person in history, prepares for his 90th birthday, Stephen Bell, the Hallé and Hallé Choir celebrate this incredible composer and his symphonic legacy. ‘John is much more of a chameleon as a composer,’ says Steven Spielberg, ‘he reinvents himself with every picture.’ No-one can match Williams’ ability to evoke the essence of a movie; the pain of Schindler’s List, the poignancy of Saving Private Ryan, the sheer adventure of Indiana Jones or the innocent, unbelieveable excitement of E.T.. Every score tonight is from a great movie, made even greater by extraordinary music.

Tuning Up – 6.30pm: Pre-concert performance given by students from the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM).
