Philharmonia Orchestra


Philharmonia Orchestra

The Philharmonia returns to De Montfort Hall with superstar cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason, who performs in Leicester for the first time. From winning BBC Young Musician of the Year in 2016 to performing at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, his career has gone from strength to strength. Kanneh-Mason is the soloist in Haydn's Cello Concerto No. 2, an effervescent piece full of sparkling passages across the instrument's upper and lower registers.

Conductor Elena Schwarz takes to the podium for Grażyna Bacewicz's Overture for Symphony Orchestra – a charming whistlestop tour of a symphony orchestra that's just a few minutes long – and Beethoven's Symphony No. 7. Despite his oncoming deafness, Beethoven was still able to channel positivity and optimism into this ebullient symphony.
