Serenade for Tenor, Horn & Strings
Britten Sinfonia’s recent recording of Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings with Mark Padmore has been acclaimed worldwide and these artists will perform the work in this fascinating concert. Violinist Pekka Kuusisto directs the orchestra in an illuminating programme of works which also includes a new work by Judith Weir, commissioned by the Britten Pears Foundation and Royal Philharmonic Society, to celebrate Britten’s centenary and the Bicentenary of the Royal Philharmonic Society.
This programme was jointly devised by Pekka Kuusisto and Britten Sinfonia.
