Originally written to accompany a short education film, The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra was premiered in Liverpool in 1946 under the baton of Sir Malcolm Sergeant. Charmingly full of catchy tunes, enjoy this epic tour of the instruments of the orchestra. Milhaud’s Le boeuf sur le toit was originally written for a surrealist ballet and offers a playful, Brazilian tinged composition. Next, Rimsky-Korsakov’s colourful Suite, The Golden Cockerel breathes life into Pushkin's much-loved fairytale about a warmongering tsar losing both love and power. Don’t miss Petrenko’s final concert of the season and his signature Shostakovich, as well as BBC Young Musician of the Year 2016, Sheku Kanneh-Mason performing Dvorák’s Rondo.
