Few living composers write with more beauty, power or unsparing emotional honesty than Ukrainian composer Victoria Vita Polevá. A Polevá premiere is a major event, so we can’t wait to be joined by cellist Inbal Segev for the first UK performance of her Cello Concerto in February.

Accordion and orchestra
It’s not often that the accordion gets to take centre stage with a full orchestra. João Barradas is one of the most boundary-defying accordionists in Europe, working between classical, jazz and improvised music. In March, he joins us for the UK premiere of a brand new piece by Portuguese composer Luís Tinoco at London’s Battersea Arts Centre. It’s going to be something special!
