Music by one of Poland's foremost 20th century composers will be part of the Northern Chamber Orchestra's latest programme. The Concerto for Strings by Grażyna Bacewicz features as part  of the orchestras concert at the Stoller Hall, Manchester (15/3/2019) and the Heritage Centre, Macclesfiel (16/3/2019), in a programme which also includes Schumann's Piano Concerto with soloist Martin Roscoe, Gounod's Petite symphony and Mozart's Haffner Symphony.

Her Concerto for Strings was written in 1949 and has become one of Bacewicz's most performed works.
