Sir Mark Elder conductor

Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha soprano | Roderick Williams baritone | Hallé Choir Matthew Hamilton, Choral Director | Hallé Youth Choir Stuart Overington, Director

Vaughan Williams Symphony No.6 31′
Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony 63′

Vaughan Williams holds a central place in the heritage of 20th-century British music. The range of his art is distinctly apparent in the juxtaposition of these two symphonies, the Sixth with its turbulent fast movements and enigmatic, bleak wasteland conclusion, and the choral First, A Sea Symphony, setting Walt Whitman’s poetry, with its surging majestic opening and searching finale which Sir Mark views as ‘a mystical journey to the stars and beyond.’ Joining the Hallé Choir are soprano Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha, Song Award winner of the 2021 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, making her Hallé debut, and an always welcome guest, Roderick Williams, described by the Daily Telegraph as ‘our greatest living baritone.’
