Alissa Firsova - Musically Gifted - Britten Sinfonia - Support our work

Alissa Firsova

Britten Sinfonia is thrilled to have commissioned a new work for trumpet and strings by British-Russian pianist, composer and conductor Alissa Firsova. Since bursting onto the scene in 2001 when she won the BBC Proms/Guardian Young Composer competition, she has since performed at numerous international festivals, and composed for and conducted many leading ensembles.

The new work will be premiered and toured as part of Russian Spring, with concerts taking place in Norwich, Leeds, Saffron Walden and Basingstoke in April 2022.

We are very excited to be working with Alissa, and hope you will help support this commission, you can get involved from as little as £5. To find out more and donate, follow the links below.
