Britten Sinfonia: Magnum Opus Composer Showcase

A composite image featuring the three soloists: Sean Shibe on the left, holding his guitar, Emma Smith in the middle, and Ryan Corbett on the right, holding his accordion.

Discover three new chamber concertos by composers whose careers are just taking off.

Britten Sinfonia’s year-long composer development programme, Magnum Opus, comes to a climax with the premieres of works by Crystalla Serghiou, David John Roche and Daniel Soley, written for and performed by Britten Sinfonia players and an exciting line-up of soloists including magnetic, boundary-breaking guitarist Sean Shibe, rising jazz star Emma Smith, and the first accordionist to become a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist, Ryan Corbett.

The end time for this concert will be added here closer to the performance date
