Saint-Saens' Organ Symphony: City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), Boris Giltburg, Darius Battiwalla, Harish Shankar
The orchestra thunders and roars, everyone’s silent, and then with one mighty chord, the Symphony Hall organ blows the roof off. However well you know Saint-Saëns’s Organ Symphony, experiencing it live in concert never gets any less exciting. How to top that? Well, the chance to hear the great Boris Giltburg in Prokofiev’s high-octane Third Piano Concerto might well come close – with Ravel’s lovely Mother Goose Suite as a playful upbeat.
CBSO+ 6.15pm: Conductor Harish Shankar introduces this evening's programme in conversation with CBSO Chief Executive Stephen Maddock OBE.
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.
