  • Fauré Masques et Bergamasques24′
  • Julian Anderson Litanies20′ (CBSO Centenary Commission: UK Premiere)
  • Stravinsky Pulcinella40′

Blazing with colour and teeming with imagination, the music of the CBSO’s old friend Julian Anderson has always gone down a storm here in Birmingham, and to celebrate our Centenary he’s written Litanies, a Cello Concerto with a magical difference. Fauré’s enchanted garden of mockbaroque melodies (including his famous Pavane) and the elegant hijinks of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella (in a rare complete performance) will make for a very special evening.
