Hallé/Elder review – Elder’s measured passion unleashes Mahler’s magic
Bridgewater Hall, ManchesterMahler’s huge Third Symphony marked a triumphant opening of the Hallé’s spring seasonThe once familiar sight of bustling Bridgewater Hall greeted the Hallé orchestra, who opened their spring season with a long-awaited performance of Mahler’s Third Symphony – originally scheduled for May 2020.Where Mahler’s Second Symphony follows the passage of darkness into light, the Third gets even closer to his world-encompassing aspiration, charting nature’s journey via mankind towards God’s love. Involving six, lopsidedly arranged movements, requiring a vast number of musicians and lasting for well over 90 minutes, it’s an ambitious piece to programme at any time, but, with a vista of performers on one side and a packed auditorium on the other, Mark Elder was a picture of calm, interrupting his economical gestures only to shake more sound out of the strings.Elder’s dedication to painting the big picture can come at the expense of rhythmic transparency, but the sound he conjures from the Hallé is plush, dramatic and – crucially for this work – unhurried. The orchestra’s nine horns began proceedings resolutely as each section presented their own vivid colours in turn through the sprawling opening movement, Katy Jones’s sonorous trombone solo the pick of the bunch.

The big idea: should animals have the same rights as humans?
Endless debates about the human-like animals are miss the point. Can we respect them regardless?The government has finally caught up with what most animal behavioural scientists have been saying for years by formally recognising animals as sentient beings in its animal welfare (sentience) bill. In November it was confirmed that the scope of the bill would be extended to include in the “sentient” category all decapod crustaceans (such as crabs and lobsters) and cephalopods (including octopuses, squid and cuttlefish). This ruling heeds a review led by Jonathan Birch of the London School of Economics, who points out: “Octopuses and other cephalopods have been protected in science for years, but have not received any protection outside science until now.”Although these rulings are welcome, their tardiness is sobering. People have been arguing fiercely, dogmatically and even violently about animal welfare for a very long time – yet framing the issue in terms of legally enforced rights comes with baggage about the socially constructed (and therefore exclusively human) nature of moral status and rights-based reasoning. The starting point should rather have been the nature of animal cognition: how we and other beings are situated in a broad panorama of minds. While there is still plenty to learn about that mindscape, Birch is right to imply that, given what science has already told us, it borders on the absurd that UK law took so long to formally acknowledge animal sentience.

Boris Johnson Says He Takes Islamophobia Claims 'Extremely Seriously'
Boris Johnson has said he took “extremely seriously” claims made by a former minister that she was sacked because of concerns about her “Muslimness”.The prime minister has ordered an inquiry into the allegations made by Conservative MP Nusrat Ghani.Ghani has said that she was removed as a transport minister because of concerns about her Muslim faith.She said that when she raised the matter with the prime minister directly after losing her job in a February 2020 ministerial reshuffle, he told her he could not get involved.Speaking to broadcasters on Monday morning, Johnson said: “We take these allegations extremely seriously.“I took them very seriously when they were raised with me 18 months ago.”The prime minister added he “can’t say more” about it now there was an inquiry underway.Ghani told The Sunday Times that when she asked why she had lost her job she was told her “Muslimness was raised as an issue”.Chief Whip Mark Spencer, who has admitted speaking to her, angrily denied her claims, saying they were “completely false” and “defamatory”.Education Secretary Nadhim Zahawi, who on Sunday backed a probe into the allegations, said it was “important” the matter was looked into “properly”.In comments made later to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Zahawi praised Ghani’s “bravery”, as he called for the Whitehall inquiry to be concluded “swiftly”.He added: “This is very serious, it takes a lot of bravery for someone to stand up and say: ‘My religion was taken into consideration when I was being assessed for what I do as a job.’“That should never happen and there is no room for it.”Labour’s shadow women and equalities secretary, Anneliese Dodds, welcomed the inquiry into the allegations but said it “doesn’t replace the need for an immediate investigation into whether the Chief Whip broke the ministerial code”.Related...Tory MP Stuns People By Declaring Islamophobia Can Only Impact 'Obvious' MuslimsCabinet Minister Refuses To Say If He's Fed Up 'Of Having To Constantly Defend PM'
