Three masterpieces from three centuries! In one gloriously colourful concert, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla sweeps from Haydn’s cheerful salute to the dawn to Gustav Mahler’s heaven-storming evocation of a whole universe awakening into life. Mahler’s First is always an overwhelming experience – but tonight, Mirga’s brought a fabulous gift from her native Lithuania, too: the UK premiere of Raminta Šerkšnyte’s atmospheric, explosive Fires.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: A piano recital performed by the rising stars of Birmingham Conservatoire.

This concert will be broadcast live on 

Access Information

Please note that there will be limited access to Symphony Hall and reduced space in the foyers, due to an event at the ICC which will close the mall.  Access from Centenary Square is not affected; however the canal side / Brindleyplace entrance will be closed to ticket holders both before and after the concert. You will be unable to access Symphony Hall by walking up the mall of the ICC.
Strada, Starbucks, WHSmith, the cloakroom, level 3 toilets and the Symphony Hall Shop will all be open to ticket holders, however the Oak Kitchen and seating area by Starbucks will be closed. As a result the Symphony Hall foyers may be busier than usual. For step-free access to Strada, stewards will be on hand to assist disabled patrons through the mall - just ask a member of staff.
