Orchestra of the Swan
Orchestra of the Swan return to Number 8 with English Genius, the first in their Spring Concert Series.
Ireland A Downland Suite
Matthew Taylor Horn Concerto
Britten Simple Symphony
A horn concerto that, “draws its wellsprings of inspiration from the great symphonic tradition with considerable inventive flair, economy of thought and wit”(Gramophone Review) is performed by OOTS principal horn, Francesca Moore-Bridger. This is matched with an Ireland masterpiece originally written for Brass Band, later arranged for string orchestra, and ending with a work entirely based on material which Britten wrote between the ages of nine and twelve.
Conducted by Stacey Watton.
Ticket holders are invited to join Orchestra of the Swan for a pre-concert talk at 6.45pm.
