  • Harrison Concerto for Violin and Percussion
  • Reich Quartet for Two Vibraphones and Two Pianos
  • Eliasson Kimmo for Trumpet and Percussion

In Centre Stage, you get to hear every section of our Orchestra doing what it does best, and in this electrifying programme the CBSO’s percussion section joins forces with students from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire and colleagues from elsewhere in the Orchestra to present three utterly unique post-war masterpieces. Steve Reich hardly needs introduction – but Lou Harrison and Anders Eliasson are every bit as thrilling.
