Stravinsky’s The Firebird is one of the best-loved works in all music, conjuring a sumptuous fairytale world of glittering colours, enchanted melodies and blood-curdling thrills. Andris Nelsons’ first journey through this magical score with the CBSO is one of the most keenly-awaited concerts this year. And as a bonus, three of the world’s finest woodwind soloists - two of them real Birmingham favourites! - play three fascinatingly different modern masterpieces.
