Joshua Weilerstein joins us in a programme featuring the mighty ‘Emperor Concerto’ with Liverpool favourite, Stephen Hough at the keyboard. Bartok’s Divertimento for Strings was composed just weeks before the onset of World War 2, which eventually forced him to leave fascist Europe for the life of an exile in New York City.
This concert has been extended and will be available until midnight on Sunday 28 February 2021.

We’ve been thrilled with the positive feedback on these concerts:
The 4* Times review praised "a performance of dancing colours, crisp beauty and punch… Petrenko’s forces played with heart, soul and all the other necessaries in a performance strong enough to overwhelm even a home listener alone with a laptop."
The Guardian remarked on the concert’s “maximum impact for a bold start to virtual season”
“Brilliant concert. Excellent programme. Great to have Stephen Johnson involved. Top class performance. More please ! Bravo !
“The sound quality was excellent and the programme was excellent.”
“This was so beautiful it made me cry”
