The Hallé Christmas Concert
The Hallé Orchestra conducted by Stephen Bell - Royal Concert Hall

Program Info:
The Hallé Orchestra
Stephen Bell, conductor
Quirijn de Lang, baritone

Joining the Hallé for their indispensable contribution to Nottingham’s Christmas calendar is Dutch baritone Quirijn de Lang. Equally at home singing the music of Lerner and Loewe as he is when donning the Toreador’s cape in Bizet’s Carmen, both sides of his artistry feature in this festive programme. There are rapt devotional numbers in Franck’s Panis Angelicus and Adam’s O Holy Night, and Quirijn’s verbal dexterity will get a work out in Figaro’s immortal aria, Largo al Factotum. Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker provides a quintet of its best-loved numbers, Nigel Hess treats a line-up of famous carols to a sparkling makeover and there’s some TV and movie fun from Alan Silvestri and Sam Fonteyn. Add in a host of classic Christmas songs (with audience participation, of course) and your musical celebrations are complete.
