James MacMillan has been called the greatest British composer since Britten, and his music is urgent, melodious, and burning to communicate. The UK premiere of his St Luke Passion – co-commissioned for the 40th anniversary of the CBSO Chorus – is a major event, and with the composer himself conducting our famous choruses, this is a chance to experience musical history in the making.

6.15pm Pre-concert talk: James MacMillan introduces the UK premiere of his St Luke Passion, in conversation with Stephen Maddock.

Benjamin Britten : Serenade for tenor, horn and strings
