Side-By-Side - The Hallé And Hallé Youth Orchestra

Euan Shields Conductor

Thomas Adès Selection From Inferno Suite
R. Strauss Death And Transfiguration

Two generations of Hallé musicians join forces to perform a dramatic duo of pieces, each offering a contrasting view of the afterlife.

Director of the Hallé Youth Orchestra, Euan Shields will guide the combined forces of talent and experience as members of the two orchestras sit side-by-side in what will be a moving and memorable performance, for both audience and musicians.

Adés’ Inferno Suite, extracted from his celebrated score for The Dante Project, is a wrathful work, exploring Dante’s nine circles of Hell through eight incandescent sections. Contrastingly, Richard Strauss’s Death and Transfiguration is more contemplative than contemptuous; it represents the final reminiscent thoughts of a dying artist, before being granted transfiguration ‘from the infinite reaches of heaven’.
