  • Kodály Serenade
  • Korngold Sextet

Get closer to our musicians and discover one of Birmingham's best kept musical secrets, a series of short, informal concerts programmed and introduced by our musicians at CBSO Centre. 

Following its premiere, Bela Bartók described Kodály’s Serenade for two violins and viola as ‘extraordinarily rich in melodies with exotic characteristics influenced by the strong rubato of old peasant music’. In this short concert by members of the CBSO String section, it is performed alongside by Korngold’s finest chamber work. 


Performance durations vary, but are usually less than 1 hour.

A selection of delicious cakes and hot drinks will be available to buy up to an hour before the performances.
