Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto: City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), Gabriela Montero, Joana Mallwitz
A February afternoon in Birmingham – and who couldn’t do with a good holiday? Let us take the strain, as conductor Joana Mallwitz whirls you away on a colourful cross-European roadtrip, from the flying fiddles of Kodály’s Hungary to the Highland mists of Mendelssohn’s Scottish symphony. Plus a stop-over in Imperial Russia – where the one-and only Gabriela Montero is the soloist in Tchaikovsky’s magnificent and much-loved First Piano Concerto.
CBSO+ 1pm: Conductor Joana Mallwitz in conversation with CBSO violinist Catherine Arlidge MBE.
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.
