HK Gruber conductor | Lucy Hall soprano

Manchester has always welcomed musicians from different lands. During his time as the BBC Philharmonic's official Composer /Conductor, the Austrian maverick HK "Nali" Gruber has shown us a few things that we never realised about ourselves - like just how close Vienna is to the Mancunian way. In 2010 during the Mahler in Manchester festival we asked a number of composers to take their inspiration from Mahler and create new works to accompany all of his symphonies. Tonight Nali gives you a second chance to enjoy four of these Mahler companions again.
