  • Sibelius Nightride and Sunrise15′
  • Britten Nocturne27′
  • Beethoven Symphony No. 3 (Eroica)47′

Beethoven’s Eroica symphony changed music forever. It’s music of revolution: breathless, bold and crackling with an electricity that still sets hairs on end today. Under the young Birmingham-raised conductor Jamie Phillips, it’ll be a thrilling climax to a concert that opens deep in Sibelius’s winter night – and features the superb English tenor Toby Spence in Britten’s atmospheric Nocturne.

Part of The Spirit of England.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: English tenor Toby Spence will be in conversation with CBSO violinist Catherine Arlidge MBE.
