Kirill Karabits conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra in music by Britten, Shostakovich and Prokofiev.

The concert opens with Britten’s light-hearted Canadian Carnival, which was inspired by a visit to Toronto in 1939. Following that is Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No. 1 – ‘a symphony for solo violin and orchestra’ – featuring soloist James Ehnes.

Finally, the orchestra presents Prokofiev’s Seventh Symphony. Written when the composer returned to Russia from the West in 1933, it is a rich and lyrical work. The concert will be broadcast live from the Lighthouse Arts Centre in Poole.
