The 2013 Proms performance of Wagner’s complete Parsifal with the Hallé conducted by Sir Mark Elder CBE has just been released on the Hallé label to coincide with Sir Mark’s 70th birthday on June 2nd. This follows their highly acclaimed recordings of Die Walküre and Götterdämmerung. Last month the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra released a live recording of their December 2015 Lohengrin concert performance under Sir Mark’s baton.
Sir Mark will celebrate his birthday in Bridgewater Hall Manchester on Sunday June 4th with a performance of Schoenberg’s epic Gurrelieder with the combined forces of the Hallé and BBC Philharmonic orchestras.
