Rory Macdonald conductor
Sheku Kanneh-Mason cello

Needing no introduction, cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason will draw all the nostalgic romanticism from Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, given here in a specially commissioned slightly reduced instrumentation by George Morton to accommodate the present restrictions. Written a surprise Christmas present for his wife, and to celebrate the birth of their new son Siegfried, Richard Wagner gave the first performance of Siegfried Idyll with just 13 players outside her bedroom door 150 years ago!  

The concert will be available to watch from 7pm on Tuesday 1 June, preceded by a live preconcert talk on Zoom at 7pm with BBC Radio 3 broadcaster and author Stephen Johnson, and a post-concert Zoom q and a session with musicians, conductors and staff in a sort of ‘post-match analysis’, where you can ask questions and participate. Further information on how to join the Zoom will be sent to you after you purchase a ticket.

Prices are as follows:

  • Individual - £10
  • Supporter -  £15
  • Superstar (what you would normally pay to attend a live concert) - £32

You can watch the video at any point without the Zoom element. Please note on demand videos will only be available for 30 days from the date of initial broadcast.

* Please note that you need to be logged in to view the video after you have purchased it.
