April 2016: We're delighted to announce that we'll be performing a UK premiere at the BBC Proms this summer. The exciting new commission is The Infant Minstrel and His Peculiar Menagerie, by Lera Auerbach, scheduled for Sunday 31 July at the Royal Albert Hall.

The Prom - number 22 - will also feature music by Ravel and Debussy, under the baton of Edward Gardner. Onstage with CEFC will be the BBC Symphony Orchestra and violinist Vadim Gluzman.

And the programme has already attracted the attention of the critics, with the Independent's Jessica Duchen choosing it as one of her 10 Best Proms.
