Award for Mahler in Manchester

The BBC Philharmonic and Hallé’s combined performance of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony at The Bridgewater Hall has won a South Bank Sky Arts Award.

The project was one of the highlights of the city’s six month long Mahler in Manchester Festival, in which the BBC Philharmonic and the Halle joined forces with The Bridgewater Hall and Manchester Camerata for a city-wide tribute.

Along with the symphonies, the orchestras performed new works commissioned for the series, including Friedrich Cerha’s Like a Tragicomedy and Luke Bedford’s At Three and Two.
