In a long list of outstanding young composers and musicians to have worked with Britten Sinfonia, few come with a higher pedigree than pianist Benjamin Grosvenor. Still only 23 years old, he makes his Britten Sinfonia debut, directing from the keyboard Mozart’s last Piano Concerto No. 27 in a concert that also celebrates Britten Sinfonia’s charismatic leader Jacqueline Shave’s first decade with the orchestra.

Pre-concert Event – 6.30pm

The world premiere of three new works by 2015 Cambridge University Composers Workshop winner, Alex Tay. (free to ticket holders)

*This new work has been commissioned by the William Alwyn Foundation.
