Pianist Benjamin Grosvenor and Britten Sinfonia Leader Thomas Gould join forces for a vividly contrasting programme of chamber music from Bach to the 21st century.

Grosvenor has been described as 'one in a million...several million' by The Independent, and as 'a keyboard visionary' by the Süddeutsche Zeitung. He directs Britten Sinfonia in Bach and Mozart from the keyboard in this eclectic and illuminating programme of music spanning almost 300 years.

Thomas Gould leads the orchestra in two Schubert-inspired works by the award-winning Bulgarian-born composer Dobrinka Tabakova, and also directs a new composition, supported by the William Alwyn Foundation, by one of the most exciting young British composers of his generation, Robin Haigh, who won a British Composer Award aged 24.

Milton Court Concert Hall

Britten Sinfonia is one of the world's most celebrated and pioneering ensembles. The orchestra is acclaimed for its virtuoso musicianship, an inspired approach to concert programming which makes bold, intelligent connections across 400 years of repertoire, and a versatility that is second to none. Britten Sinfonia breaks the mould by not having a principal conductor or director, instead choosing to collaborate with a range of the finest international guest artists from across the musical spectrum, resulting in performances of rare insight and energy.
