Hallé Orchestra - Tonights Prom

The 2011 PROMS have been going for nearly a week now, and tonight we are in for a real treat with the Hallé orchestra performing under the baton of Sir Mark Elder. This month,  we are offering 25% off the entire Hallé back catalogue on the Classical Shop. Since the orchestra launched its own CD label in 2003, it has gone from strength to strength. Among the label's many triumphs is Elgar's Violin Concerto with Thomas Zehetmair as soloist, which won a  Gramophone award in 2010. Another of Hallé's many award-winning recordings is Götterdämmerung by Richard Wagner. The Daily Telegraph wrote of a performance of this work by the Hallé orchestra: "The orchestra, re-inforced for the occasion to more than 100 and with enough harps on-and-off stage to restock Paradise, responded with world-class playing."  A must have for your collection!
