We present three concerts over the course of a day celebrating the great composer and conductor Oliver Knussen, a figure at the heart of the Aldeburgh Festival for many decades, in the month that would have seen his 70th birthday. In addition to Knussen’s music, the programmes feature music by composers who were particularly close to him, including special musical tributes for solo cello by his close composer friends and colleagues.

All the performers have connections to Knussen as a composer and conductor, and the three concerts together form an introduction to his world and an upbeat to the evening’s BBC Symphony Orchestra concert.

*Special Offer* Book for all three concerts, Oliver Knussen Day part one, part two and part three, and save 10% on the ticket price.
