Passion, drama and off-the-scale emotion.

Don’t be misled by its title: Pathetique means “full of feeling”, and no symphony wears its heart quite so passionately on its sleeve as Tchaikovsky’s Sixth - a no-holds-barred musical autobiography by a composer on the edge. Add the star-cross’d romance of Romeo and Juliet, plus two of British music’s brightest stars playing Shostakovich’s fizzing Concerto, and you can expect off-the-scale emotion from Kazuki Yamada and the CBSO.

The CBSO Benevolent Fund is a registered friendly society no. 735F and all proceeds from this concert will go towards supporting CBSO players and staff.
