Described as “a phenomenon, a mover and shaker” by BBC Music Magazine, Maxime Pascal, whose obvious and instant connection with Hallé musicians and audiences, has made him a firm favourite.


After the turbulence of Brahms’s Tragic Overture, Maxime Pascal is joined by the young Israeli pianist, Tom Borrow, the latest Terence Judd-Hallé Award winner and a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist.


Noted by The Gramophone as “One to Watch”, he performs Beethoven’s striking Third Piano Concerto. Prokofiev’s ballet score Romeo and Juliet captures all the drama of Shakespeare’s tragedy in vivid, characterful music, whether it be the ardent emotions of the star-crossed lovers or the haughty personification of their feuding families, the Montagues and Capulets, now known throughout the land as the theme music for television’s The Apprentice.
