The final concert of the 2013 festival presents a feast of music for string orchestra and a top-notch combination of performers. Three well-established classics of the repertoire by Vaughan Williams, Britten and Tippett promise lyrical, melodic expanses of sound alongside music that is joyous and rhythmically vital.

Toby Spence is one of Britain’s most acclaimed singers on the world stage, and his performance here of Britten’s Serenade and a new companion work by Michael Zev Gordon immediately follow his re-creation of the Peter Pears role, Earl of Essex, in Britten’s Gloriana at the Royal Opera House.
