So when the glitt’ring Queen of Night
A world in the Moone (world premiere tour)
All Night under the Moon
Sonne der Schlummerlosen
Keine gleicht von allen schonen
A very special programme of music featuring the incomparable countertenor Iestyn Davies, performing a programme of music composed and arranged by Tim Watts, taking scores by composers including Purcell, Ivor Gurney and Hugo Wolf. The concert also features the world premiere of a new work for countertenor and string sextet.
Tim Watts’ new work forms part of Britten Sinfonia’s Musically Gifted campaign. See Tim’s Musically Gifted page for details of how you can receive signed scores, free tickets and even meet the composer.
