Purcell ed. Britten Chacony in G minor
Pawel Mykietyn New Work (world première tour)
John Woolrich Quiddities
Schoenberg Verklärte Nacht

For the final concert in our lunchtime series, Britten Sinfonia draws on a programme devised by John Woolrich. Woolrich's evocative Quiddities - written for Nicholas Daniel and Britten Sinfonia in 2005 - is set alongside a new work from one of Poland's hottest young composers Pawel Mykietyn. Chacony is perhaps the best known of Britten's Purcell editions, and there is also a chance to hear Schoenberg's beautiful Verklärte Nacht at its most transparent and delicate in the original string sextet version.

This concert will be recorded for future broadcast.
