A mountain peak, a cathedral in sound... Anton Bruckner’s Sixth Symphony has been compared to many things. But what matters tonight is that it contains music beautiful enough to pierce the very soul, and Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla is devoted to it. And that in the hands of the phenomenal Piotr Anderszewski, Bartók’s explosive Third Piano Concerto should bring the house down.

CBSO+ 6pm: Join Royal Birmingham Conservatoire musicians for a special piano showcase before tonight’s concert.

Please note the pre-concert talk will now start at 6pm, 15 minutes earlier than previously advertised, due to the Making an Entrance redevelopments. You will be asked to show your ticket for access into the pre-concert talk, and then invited to take your seat for the concert immediately after the talk concludes. Times of talks will be listed on the concert pages of the CBSO and THSH’s websites in advance, please check before making travel plans.
