Hailed as one of the most versatile and passionate conductors of his generation, Pablo González is an inspirational musician to orchestras and audiences throughout the world.
Pablo is conducting The Hallé when they return to Blackburn’s King George’s Hall on Friday 3rd February 2017 to perform works by Ravel, Lalo and Brahms.
They are joined by renowned violinist Leticia Moreno. Leticia is recognised as a truly exciting and versatile violinist and in 2012 was named as an Echo Rising Star.
They will perform Lalo’s colourful and virtuosic Symphonie Espagnole. It is a work that exuberantly depicts the landscapes, people and folk traditions of their native country. González conducts Ravel’s typically elegant and very Gallic Pavane.
Brahms said of his Second Symphony, the final piece of the evening, that “melodies flow so freely that one has to be careful not to trample any of them under foot”. Accordingly, it is one of the composer’s most cheerful and genial creations.
The audience can also enjoy a pre-concert talk with Pablo González, where he will reflect upon his career and the coming evening’s performance.
