CBSO & Sheku Kanneh-Mason: Elgar’s Cello Concerto

Wed 21 August 2019 7:30pm

When Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla recorded Shostakovich together, it became one of the best-selling classical recordings this century. Hear that dream-team today, in the most loved of all British cello concertos; and discover a powerful symphony by Weinberg, for whom Mirga has a real passion. A neglected classic from Birmingham composer Dorothy Howell sets the mood for musical adventure.
