Conductor Sergey Smbatyan brings the orchestra he founded to Manchester for the first time – and celebrates the greatest Armenian composer of all.

Aram Khachaturian is the Armenian national composer, and the Arm Symphony tonight treats us to two of his most popular works: a suite from his immensely popular ballet Spartacus, and the effervescent Violin Concerto, performed by Manchester-born virtuoso Jennifer Pike. To close, a Russian Romantic powerhouse: Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony, a journey into life, love and fate.
