The Hallé with Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus and Leeds Festival Chorus

Sheffield International Concert Season 2021/22

Oval Hall | Sheffield City Hall

Programme: BRITTEN Peter Grimes: Four Sea Interludes (16), ADÈS Inferno Suite (20)WALTON Belshazzar's Feast (36)

The final concert of the season celebrates home-grown talent with works by three British composers.

Opening the concert are Britten’s brilliantly-realised Sea Interludes, that act as clever scene changes from his post-war opera Peter Grimes, telling the dark tale of the cantankerous and misunderstood fisherman. Next is Thomas Adès’s brilliantly orchestrated showstopper, Inferno, described by the LA Times as ‘a sizzling, cracking whip of a piece'.

The full vocal forces of the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus and the Leeds Festival Chorus come together with the Hallé and baritone Benedict Nelson under the direction of Finnegan Downie Dear for Walton’s dramatic cantata, Belshazzar’s Feast. First performed at the 1931 Leeds Festival, the richly orchestrated music is strongly rhythmic and reflects the composer’s interest in jazz and other popular music. A truly fitting finale to this fantastic season.
