  • Mendelssohn Symphony No. 5 (Reformation)30′

A living statue, a fearless seducer, and the gates of Hell itself…few operas end more dramatically than Mozart’s Don Giovanni, and you can hear it all: right there, in the very first notes of the opera’s barnstorming overture. It’s an electrifying way for conductor Chloé van Soeterstède to make her Birmingham debut, and the voltage only gets higher as she joins pianist Paul Lewis in Beethoven’s brightest piano concerto – known as his second, but actually his first, and sparkling with youthful joy. Finally, van Soeterstede and the CBSO sets their sights on heaven itself, in Mendelssohn’s stirring Reformation symphony: turbulence and triumph, from a composer who was never happier than when he was in Birmingham!

On sale information
We’re delighted to have live performances on sale and can’t wait to welcome audiences back to Symphony Hall. However, please note that tickets must be booked online as telephone and counter sales are currently unavailable, as the Symphony Hall Box Office team are still working from home.

A new acoustic screen has been installed at the rear of the Symphony Hall stage, allowing a larger number of musicians to sit on the flat stage and play together while maintaining social distancing than has previously been possible.  The view of the back of the stage from the Stalls will be slightly affected as a result: but it does mean that CBSO audiences will see and hear what we believe is the largest orchestra performing regularly anywhere in the UK at this time.

Government Restrictions: please note, this concert is being planned according to the latest Government guidelines and roadmap. Should the concert be unable to go ahead as live and is instead filmed, your ticket will be valid to watch the concert online. Refunds will also be available on request.
