Join Britten Sinfonia for an evening with two of the UK's biggest talents: acclaimed tenor Nicky Spence and rising star horn player Ben Goldscheider.
Winner of BBC Music Magazine’s “Personality of the Year” award in 2022, tenor and broadcaster Nicky Spence is a charismatic star of the opera stage, now at the peak of his career and renowned for his remarkable versatility. He joins Britten Sinfonia and young star horn player Ben Goldscheider in Britten’s iconic Serenade.
Goldscheider plays the solo part in the new horn concerto written for him by composer and pianist Huw Watkins, one of the orchestra’s closest collaborators.
Britten Sinfonia is at full force in Judith Weir’s energetic piece inspired by a Paul Klee painting and in Mozart’s life-affirming and uplifting symphony.
