Information

The greatest influence on Britten, certainly where the kunstlied is concerned, was without a doubt Henry Purcell. Yet it is clear from his private diaries that Britten also revered his contemporaries, above all his first tutor in composition, Frank Bridge. And with good reason: Bridge's chamber music pieces may be little known, but they include a number of true gems.

This thoroughly English chamber music concert, in which the Orchestra works with dancers, is the musicians' second tribute to Benjamin Britten to mark the centenary of his birth.
