The first De Montfort Hall concert of the new Bardi season "Life, Love and Nature" will see the welcome return of BBC Young Musician Finalist Isata Kanneh-Mason as our soloist to play Schumann's romantic Piano Concerto. Dvorák's Carnaval Overture will give a lively start the concert and the evocative Symphony No.5 by Vaughan Williams a contrast in the second half.
