Change of Conductor
We regret to announce that conductor Elim Chan has had to withdraw from the concert owing to illness. We are grateful to Mihhail Gerts who will replace her at short notice. The programme remains unchanged.

Post Concert Question Time - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with Mahan Esfahani.Everything old is new again! Stravinsky’s Pulcinella takes 18th-century music, sprinkles it with humour and drops it headfirst into the Roaring Twenties. Elena Kats- Chernin (remember the Lloyds TSB advert?) takes tales from the Silk Road, and creates a typically quirky showpiece for our new Artist in Residence Mahan Esfahani. Maurice Ravel, meanwhile, looks back on childhood in his ravishing Mother Goose. We finish with more Stravinsky: the high-kicking, high-voltage Symphony in Three Movements, written in 1940s Hollywood. Pure showbiz.
