As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak and in line with government advice, the Benjamin Powell concert has been cancelled. We know that our audiences would still love to enjoy the music that the musicians and soloists have worked so hard on, so we will be broadcasting the performance at 3pm on Sunday 22 March.

You can watch the concert here.

Pianist Benjamin Powell joins us in Manchester for an afternoon bookended with Mozart divertimentos. He plays Shostakovich’s first piano concerto, written in 1933, which sees the trumpet in frequent dialogue with the piano.

Preceding the Shostakovich is Tchaikovsky’s Elegy, and we also hear the NCO’s composer in residence and double bass player James Manson’s take on Handel’s Violin sonata in D.

Please note that this concert originally featured violinist Chloë Hanslip as soloist.
