This is an evening of both luscious excess and elegant restraint. Winding violin melodies curve around the orchestra in Britten’s concerto. Continuously shifting underfoot, the music draws you into its fractured and yet stunningly beautiful world.

In Wagner’s prelude the orchestra rolls together in waves of luxuriant, glistening sound, before being engulfed by the passionate fires of the Liebestod.

The concert comes to a gentle close with a Strauss suite of innocent wonder. Deeply affecting whispers of melodies are interspersed with sweet and saucy waltzes, in an intoxicating work that is both light and deeply moving.
