The CBSO’s Centenary celebrations are about the future as well as the past, and today we invite you to help us make musical history with the world premiere of new commission for Centre Stage by the British composer Grace Evangeline Mason. A showcase for the CBSO’s principal bassoon Nikolaj Henriques gets the fun started – and wait till you hear Richard Strauss’s outrageous Till Eulenspiegel played by just seven players!

The performance of Grace Evangeline Mason’s New Work has been made possible with generous support from the RVW Trust.

This performance of Grace Evangeline Mason’s New Work is supported by PRS Foundation’s The Open Fund for Organisations.
