THE Halle return to the Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham on Friday, May 18, from 7.30pm.

Under the baton of Sir Mark Elder, the orchestra will be tackling an all-Russian evening of music, starting with Borodin’s Prince Igor Overture and also including the composer’s Second Symphony.

The rest of the concert is made up of a double dose of Tchaikovsky, namely his Concert Fantasy for piano and orchestra, and his spectacular and ever-popular 1812 Overture, complete with bells and cannons in its rousing finale.

Sofya Gulyak will be the piano soloist.

Tickets to see the concert are available by calling the box office on 0115 9895555.
