For the opening concert of its 2015/16 season, the Melos Sinfonia presents a programme of two masterworks, alongside a new piece by young Israeli composer Na’ama Zisser (b. 1988), who has previously written for the London Sinfonietta and Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra. For the Mahler, the Melos Sinfonia is joined by Ross Ramgobin, a talented young baritone who studied at the Royal Academy of Music and National Opera Studio. In 2014 he sung the title role in Britten's Owen Wingrave at the Aldeburgh and Edinburgh Festivals, and he has been nominated in the Young Artist category for The International Opera Awards 2015.
