Summary

Britten Sinfonia Academy is our youth ensemble for talented young musicians from the east of England. In this performance, the Academy will pair dynamic and key pieces of repertoire with an exciting new commission, this time by one of Britten Sinfonia’s long term collaborators, Philip Cashian. Philip spent a weekend in residence with the Academy at the Fitzwilliam, working on musical ideas inspired by the paintings, in particular La Petite Afrique III by Graham Sutherland.
