The Hallé

Sheffield International Concert Season 2021/22

Oval Hall | Sheffield City Hall

Programme: KAPRÁLOVÁ Suita rustica (16), MOZART Clarinet Concerto (25), SMETANA Má Vlast: Vltava (12), DVORAK Symphony No.8 (34)

Jonathan Bloxham joins the Hallé for a concert that celebrates music by Czech composers. In the words of the great Czech conductor Vacláv Talich, Dvorák’s Eighth Symphony “sings of the joy of green pastures, of summer evenings, of the melancholy of blue forests, of the defiant merry-making of Czech peasants.” Vltava, from Smetana’s masterful symphonic poem Má Vlast, is a beautiful musical impression of the rolling river that passes through the city of Prague and the folk-song inspired Suita Rustica by Vítězslava Kaprálová is filled with moments of innocent exuberance and exquisite lyricism.

Sergio Castelló López, the Hallé’s Principal Clarinet, takes the solo role in Mozart’s serene concerto. Written for the hugely respected 18th century clarinettist Anton Stadler, Mozart tailored the work to exploit the musician’s virtuosity, celebrated singing tone and love of the instrument’s rich, lower register.
