The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain's Spring residency will culminate in a pair of concerts conducted by Carlos Miguel Prieto, at Leeds Town Hall (8 April) and the Barbican (9 April) in which Sheku Kanneh-Mason performs Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No 1. This is the work with which Kanneh-Mason won BBC Young Musician in 2016, and it is his first UK performance of the work since then.

Also in the programme is a rare outing for The Night of the Mayas by the Mexican composer Silvestre Revueltas (1899-1940), a suite of music taken from the 1939 film of the same name. Conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto is the chief conductor of the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de México.

The London performance will be broad cast by Boiler Room TV.
