Benjamin Northey conductor
Fraser Trainer and O Duo presenters and performers

From the heat of Cuban dance halls to the masterful restraint of Ravel’s Bolero, rhythm plays a vital role in music, and throughout history has been shared, adopted and adapted by musical cultures and composers from across the globe.

In this exciting mid-week concert, the MSO will join forces with acclaimed UK percussionists Oliver Cox and Owen Gunnell of O Duo and composer Fraser Trainer, in an event which celebrates the powerful, intrinsic force that is rhythm in music. The evening will feature a brand new piece by Fraser Trainer for the MSO and O Duo, which resonates strongly with contemporary urban rhythms, alongside orchestral works from a range of composers, including Béla Bartók, Maurice Ravel and Arturo Márquez.
