This concert marks the 150th anniversary of the birth of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius, who once wrote “Music begins where the possibility of language ends”. Under the baton of Damian Iorio, MKCO will perform his incidental music from Pelléas and Mélisanda.p>

We are also delighted to welcome an amazing pianist, Giulio Biddau, to play Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21, which featured in the film Elvira Madigan [1967] as a centrepiece to this concert. Giulio was born in Cagliari and his musical studies have taken him around Europe to Rome, Berlin and currently Paris. He has performed with orchestras worldwide.

During this very special evening, MK Community Foundation will be presenting the Christopher Hopkinson Memorial Bursary to the winner of the 2015 award for musical excellence in classical music. MKCO has partnered with MK Community Foundation once again to find a talented winner.
