  • Arnold Symphony for Brass24′
  • Ireland A Downland Suite18′

Admit it: we could all do with a bit of a boost this year. So we’re in luck – because the CBSO’s superb brass section are specialists at lifting the spirits and raising the roof. And with music by three great British composers who actually conducted the CBSO, there’s no shortage of great tunes and sonic fireworks today - whether the country dances of Holst’s Moorside Suite or Malcolm Arnold’s powerful Symphony for Brass: one of the true neglected masterpieces of British music. John Ireland’s atmospheric Sussex landscape ends the concert with a blast of fresh country air: music with deep roots and a big heart. Exactly what we need right now.
