The CBSO’s Assistant Conductor Jaume Santonja Espinós has become a firm favourite here in Birmingham, and when we asked him to choose his own concert, he went all-out for passion and colour. Rimsky-Korsakov’s postcard from Spain and Prokofiev’s bittersweet fairy-tale of a final symphony frame Falla’s smouldering Spanish ballet, and five luscious, rarely-heard songs by Xavier Montsalvatge, each one glinting with Caribbean sunlight.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: Join CBSO Chief Executive Stephen Maddock in conversation with our longest-standing member, violinist David Gregory, about his life with the CBSO.
