LMP joins forces with three exceptional soloists for a fabulous concert at the Cheltenham Music Festival.
The tolling bell of Pärt’s poignant Cantus in memoriam Benjamin Britten sets the scene for a celebration of Britten, whose early work evoking the brilliance of the dazzling young sun-God contrasts with the Serenade for tenor, horn and strings – a setting of six poems on the subject of night and one of the great masterpieces of 20th century music. Mozart’s elegant piano concerto is performed by Martin James Bartlett who achieved early success as the winner of the 2014 BBC Young Musician of the Year.
