When Sheku Kanneh-Mason and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla recorded Shostakovich together, it became one of the best-selling classical recordings this century. Hear that dream-team today, in the most loved of all British cello concertos; and discover a powerful symphony by Weinberg, for whom Mirga has a real passion. A neglected classic from Birmingham composer Dorothy Howell sets the mood for musical adventure.

The performance of Lamia is made possible with funding from the ABO Trust's Sirens Programme, a ten year initiative to support the performance and promotion of music by historical women composers. The Way to Castle Yonder is supported by PRS Foundation's Resonate Programme.
