Summary

Quirky, imaginative, and quintessentially Britten Sinfonia, this 20th birthday concert showcases our musicians, close collaborator Pekka Kuusisto, as well as the orchestra’s collective sound.

The repertoire is drawn from some of our favourite programmes, and also features two specially-commissioned premieres: a new work by James MaxMillan, and a piece by rising composer Alissa Firsova for our Academy of talented musicians from the East of England. Don’t miss this celebration of Britten Sinfonia, present and future.
