Peter Scholes conductor
Patricia Wright soprano

Anthony Young - Sumer is icumen in
Gustav Hols - St Pauls Suite
Ludwig van Beethoven - Grosse Fugue, op.133
Arvo Pärt - Silouan's Song
Edward Elgar - Serenade for Strings
Benjamin Britten - Les Illuminations

A concert of string favourites which features the hallucinogenic "Les Illuminations" by Benjamin Britten with the stunning Patricia Wright as soloist.

The concert opens with Summer by Anthony Young. This was an audience favourite in 2007 so we could not resist performing it again.

String works by Holst and Elgar have unstoppable appeal and the Grosse Fugue by Beethoven is a monument of classical architecture. It is a piece where intellectual and emotional power of Beethoven is realised in a single movement for strings.
