And on the conductor's podium will be another one of the musical world's youngest new stars, Sri Lankan-born Leslie Suganandarajah. He is in demand all over the world, despite being still only in his 20s. Raised in Germany after his family fled civil war, his many posts include that of director at the Salzburg Landestheater, at the heart of Mozart's home town.

Catch these two rising stars in a concert that takes a fresh look at the repertoire too. Opening with Jessie Montgomery's Strum for strings, the programme also features Samuel Coleridge-Taylor's Four African Dances, arranged by George Morton for violin and chamber orchestra.
And then, prodigious musical talent is the theme again when the orchestra plays Mozart's Paris Symphony No 31. The composer was just 22 when he wrote it.
