The Hallé Orchestra nearly died, after 140 years of existence, when hit by a financial crisis in 1998. What led to that fateful day, not far short of the centenary of the organisation responsible for it? How could a century of achievement be threatened by such a disaster? Robert Beale examines the story behind the Hallé and its music from 1899 to 2000.
