Jazz Generation

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

From Duke Ellington to a premiere by Misha Mullov-Abbado, the BBC Concert Orchestra jazzes things up down the generations.

Matthew Barley gives the world premiere of Mullov-Abbado’s Cello Concerto, commissioned by BBC Radio 3 especially for this concert.

Principal Conductor Bramwell Tovey directs the orchestra, who are joined by Southbank Centre resident groups the Nu Civilisation Orchestra and String Ting.

The evening features new and pre-existing arrangements of music by Duke Ellington.
