BEETHOVEN Leonore No. 3 Overture
BLOCH Schelomo: Hebraic Rhapsody
SIBELIUS Symphony No. 1

Cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s career has gone from strength to strength, from winning Young Musician of the Year in 2016 to playing at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. Tonight, he is the soloist in Bloch’s lamenting and deeply profound work, Schelomo: Hebraic Rhapsody.

Opening the concert is Beethoven’s dramatic and emotive Leonore Overture No. 3. Sibelius’s defiant first symphony is full of Nordic intensity – a response to the political situation that gripped Finland at the turn of the 20th century.
