Carnegie Hall Presents

City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

Saturday, October 22, 2022 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, Sheku Kanneh-Mason by Jake Turney
The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra begins this distinctive program with an orchestral rendering drawn from Thomas Adès’s acclaimed opera The Exterminating Angel, based on Luis Buñuel’s surreal 1962 classic. Debussy’s La mer delights with its shimmering colors and dreamy harmonies, and Elgar’s melancholic Cello Concerto—written after the tragedy of the First World War—highlights the musicality of prodigiously talented cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason.

Part of: International Festival of Orchestras II
