Musica Viva presents Southbank Sinfonia

Southbank Sinfonia - an orchestra like no other.
Each year, Southbank Sinfonia welcomes thirty-three of the world’s most promising graduate musicians to come together to create a unique orchestra. These wonderful musicians who complete the Southbank Sinfonia fellowship often go on to occupy prominent seats in leading orchestras worldwide, from the Philharmonia to the Hong Kong Philharmonic. This concert is a thrilling opportunity to hear some of the most loved Beethoven masterpieces performed by some of the best young musicians in the UK, at the start of very promising careers.
Southbank Sinfonia comes to us from London, where they have developed a renowned series of concerts at their artistic home, St John’s Smith Square. The concert here features two deeply expressive and uplifting works of Beethoven: Symphony no.7 and Piano Concerto no.4, as well as the premiere of a new Plymouth-centric overture ‘Breakwater’ by the highly imaginative young composer Christopher Churcher, winner of our recent Composition Competition.
