29th June 2023
7:30 pm - 9:45 pm

James Gilchrist, tenor
Chloe Harrison, horn
Paul Hoskins, conductor

Elgar Serenade for Strings
Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings
Mahler Adagietto from Symphony No. 5
Beethoven Symphony No. 2

Elgar described the Serenade for Strings as one of his personal favourites. Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, is a glorious setting of six English poems that Britten completed in 1943. It is meditative and melancholic, with the songs framed by a solo horn. Mahler’s Adagietto is love song to his wife Alma – its enduring popularity owes much to Visconti’s film Death in Venice. Beethoven’s second symphony was composed when the fear of Napoleon loomed over Europe but still generates and maintains a cheerful enthusiasm – it is full of energy and musical jokes.
