Never miss another 'City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO)' show
Russian Classics: City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Mirga Grazinyte-Tyla
Remember when Sheku Kanneh-Mason won BBC Young Musician in 2016? The nation was bowled over by the charisma and energy of his playing. Today, for the first time, he teams up with Mirga Gražinyt?- Tyla in Shostakovich’s thriller of a First Cello Concerto. The results should be gripping – and a powerful contrast both to Rachmaninov’s shadowy fantasies, and the sparkling melodies and fairytale romance of Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty.
CBSO+ 6.15pm: CBSO violinist Catherine Arlidge MBE talks to recent winner of BBC Young Musician of the Year Sheku Kanneh-Mason, and former winner, CBSO percussionist Adrian Spillett.
Founded in 1920, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has always had an illustrious career. In fact, the first concert was conducted by Sir Edward Elgar. The orchestra has grown into a 90-piece ensemble with a worldwide reputation.
