with Dinis Sousa

Mozart’s sparkling Clarinet Concerto sits at the heart of a trio of classical favourites from North East-based chamber orchestra Royal Northern Sinfonia, their Principal Conductor Dinis Sousa and celebrated clarinettist Julian Bliss.

Prokofiev’s witty 20th century take on the Classical style is a playful prelude to Mozart before Beethoven’s epic, ground-breaking Eroica symphony brings the evening to an action-packed conclusion.
