CBSO Music Director Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla (pictured) kickstarts the orchestra’s new season with a 20th century classic.

A strikingly original secular oratoriocommunicating a strong pacifist message, Michael Tippet’s A Child Of Our Time was composed during the first two years of the Second World War.

The composer found his inspiration for the work in Kristallnacht - the Nazi government's pogrom against its Jewish population in 1938.

The CBSO concert also features Benjamin Britten’s Sinfonia da Requiem.
