Delyana Lazarova was first-prize winner at the 2020 Siemens-Hallé International Conducting Competition, following which she was appointed as Assistant Conductor to Sir Mark Elder at the Hallé. Born locally, Jennifer Pike was the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year and is now in demand as a soloist all over the world.
Together they begin the NCO’s season with Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, a work radical in both the grandeur of its conception and the originality of its solo writing. The concert ends with the Eroica Symphony, undoubtedly a turning point in music history. The two opening forte chords herald a new sound world, full of of emotional extremes, complex rhythms and harmonic dissonances. Music without precedent. Revolutionary music on an epic scale.
