In Stock: Sir John Barbirolli

The Halle Orchestra is one of the great Manchester Institutions, with Sir John Barbirollo being its most famous conductor, conducting the orchestra from 1943 to 1970. Legend (unsubstantiated) in my family says that he offered my great-grandfather a place as a violinist in the orchestra, but that he was turned down.

This bust has pride of place outside the Bridgewater Hall, home of the orchestra since 1996.
