For her first performance as Artist in Residence, Alison Balsom is joined by Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero, recent winner of a Latin Grammy for her classical album.

Alison Balsom brings out all the zest and playfulness of Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto, one of the most popular pieces of music ever written for the instrument.

Mozart’s beautifully understated and intimate Piano Concerto No.14 K449 takes centre stage after the interval.  The evening ends with Montero and Balsom on top form with a dazzling interpretation of Shostakovich’s spirited and joyous Concerto for Piano, Strings and Trumpet.

"With an eclectic programme of time-hallowed greats, a magisterial chamber orchestra and two world-leading soloists who, in the concert finale, will perform together, this is an evening not to be missed." Read a preview of the concert here.
