We are delighted to be back, albeit online, with an exciting event to celebrate our return to the concert platform. Join us for a live-streamed performance, our first since the onset of the pandemic, in which we are joined by two acclaimed soloists.
We are giving the World Premiere of a brand new work composed by the internationally recognized baritone Roderick Williams. The work, Corona, was commissioned back in 2019 before we knew what was in store for us all, and it finally sees the light of day with the composer himself as soloist.
The young clarinettist Jack McNeill joins us for Gerald Finzi’s amazing Clarinet Concerto, one of the finest works for that instrument. The programme also includes another gorgeous work by Finzi, his Romance, and ends with Elgar’s life affirming Introduction and Allegro.
