The CBSO returns under conductor Riccardo Minasi for a captivating evening of music.

Chopin’s Piano Concerto No.2 is performed by Benjamin Grosvenor, about whom Le Monde wrote “... the alchemist has gold in his fingers, an amber and feline touch, a visionary art”. Schubert takes us to Italy in his sunny Overture, and Mozart’s magnificent ‘Jupiter’ Symphony completes the programme.
