Sheku Kanneh-Mason performs Weinberg

Tuesday 4th April 2024

You don’t need us to tell you about Sheku Kanneh-Mason – the inspirational young British cellist who’s changed the way we think about classical music.


Well, he’s back, this time with a haunting, unfairly neglected concerto by one of Shostakovich’s best friends. Meanwhile, Andrew Manze shares the greatest of British symphonies, Elgar’s First. When it was premiered in Manchester in 1908, the audience jumped to its feet and cheered – you’re about to hear why.

Coleridge-Taylor Ballade
Weinberg Cello Concerto in C minor op.43
Elgar Symphony No.1

Andrew Manze conductor
Sheku Kanneh-Mason cello

Post-concert Question Time – starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with Andrew Manze.
