Andrew Manze conductor
Lawrence Power viola 

When Sibelius saw a flock of wild swans in the evening sky he put it straight into his Fifth Symphony. Probably best not to ask what inspired Richard Strauss to write Don Juan: you can practically smell the aftershave in this swashbuckling portrait of the legendary seducer. Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Manze conducts Lawrence Power in the world premiere of a new viola concerto by one of the world's most inventive living composers. We’re making history – be there!

Post-concert Question Time - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (Music Room) with Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Manze and violist Lawrence Power.
