The most enjoyable symphony that Brahms never wrote? One’s thing for sure: this orchestral version of his First Piano Quartet is definitely flamboyant! But then, Ilan Volkov is a conductor who makes every concert into an adventure. Joining him today is one of the most exceptional cellists of her generation – in Shostakovich’s punchy Second Concerto – plus British sonic magician Simon Holt, who’s created a typically ravishing new work.

CBSO+ 6.15pm: A pre-concert sharing from a CBSO Learning & Participation project.
