Bristol Beacon

16:00

BRISTOL, UK

Programme

Our programme opens with the show-stopping PatterSongs by Liverpool-born composer Kenneth Hesketh, described by BBC Music Magazine as “a composer at the height of his considerable powers”.

After winning BBC Young Musician of the Year playing Shostakovich’s first cello Concerto, Kanneh-Mason joins forces with Sinfonia of London to perform Shostakovich’s intricate, imaginative and reference-laden Cello Concerto No.2, written originally for the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich.

We continue our series of Rachmaninoff symphonies following two critically acclaimed album releases, giving audiences a chance to hear his rarely heard Symphony No.1. John Wilson believes its neglect during and after the composer’s life is wholly unjustified and we aim to demonstrate why it deserves to sit as a masterpiece in its own right alongside its better-known younger siblings.

Kenneth Hesketh: PatterSongs
