Pure musical bliss to warm up a winter's evening.

Richard Egarr is a livewire – a world-famous expert on baroque music whose passions embrace everything from Bach to K-Pop! For Egarr, every concert is a celebration, so expect majesty, drama and simple, unbuttoned fun as he takes the CBSO on a journey from the pageantry of Bach to the poetry of Schumann – and joins former BBC Young Musician Laura van der Heijden in Haydn’s bubbly cello concerto.
