Never miss another 'City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO)' show
City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), Sheku Kanneh-Mason
Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla - conductor
Sheku Kanneh-Mason - cello
Rachmaninov - The Isle of the Dead
Shostakovich - Cello Concerto No. 1
Tchaikovsky - Sleeping Beauty (highlights)
Following his triumph in BBC Young Musician 2016 we’re thrilled to welcome local hero Sheku Kanneh-Mason to the Royal Concert Hall for his Nottingham Classics debut.
They’re doubly delighted because he comes to us in the company of the CBSO’s phenomenal new Music Director. Together they’ll be performing Shostakovich’s urgent First Cello Concerto, which gets its restless energy from the composer’s memories of harder times.
Contrasting moods colour the rest of this concert, with Rachmaninov’s opener carrying the listener over dark waters. Its emotional swell is a far cry from the exuberance of Tchaikovsky’s ballet score to Sleeping Beauty. Scene after scene reveals the composer’s dramatic flair and gift for melody.
This event takes place at Theatre Royal and Royal Concert Hall, which has achieved Silver Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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.
