The CBSO and Music Director Mirga Gražinyte-Tyla celebrate the centenary of Mieczyslaw Weinberg the man Shostakovich hailed as 'one of the most outstanding composers' of his day - with a rare performance of his Symphony No. 3, a work that combines folk melodies and dances with confessional urgency.

That intensity is shared by Elgar's passionate Cello Concerto, performed here by 2016 BBCYoung Musician winner Sheku Kanneh-Mason.

The concert opens with Dorothy Howell's radiant tone-poem Lamia (first performed, like Elgar's concerto, 100 years ago) and also includes The Way to Castle Yonder, a suite from the much-missed Oliver Knussen's opera Higglety Pigglety Pop!
