Andrew Manze is well-known as a leading interpreter and one of the composer’s biggest advocates of Vaughan Williams, a composer with whom he has a particularly close affinity. He conducts the Hallé’s performance of several of Vaughan Williams’ much-loved pieces, including his Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis and Fifth Symphony.

He will also be joined by Roberto Ruisi, Leader of the Hallé and sought-after soloist in his own right, for The Lark Ascending.

Considered revolutionary in the years following its composition thanks to its rhythmic flow and musical imagery, the solo violin acts as the songbird and the orchestra as the rolling landscape beneath it. Upon hearing the opening of Vaughan Williams’ Fifth Symphony, Andrew Manze was ‘instantly captivated by its magic’. (Presto Music)
