Saturday

Part of the LONDON CONCERT SERIES 218/19

The English Chamber Orchestra has a long tradition of promoting young artists and this concert features Ben Goldscheider, 2016 finalist of BBC Young Musician and BBC Music Magazine Rising Star. He is joined by the acclaimed tenor Ben Johnson, a former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist. Both musicians feature in Brittens much-loved Serenade, a song cycle composed for Brittens lifelong companion Peter Pears which was performed by the ECO at the 2013 Proms with none other than Ben Johnson as the soloist. Ravels exuberant Le Tombeau de Couperin, the Purcell/Britten Suite of Six Songs from Orpheus Britannicus and Stravinskys Baroque-inspired Pulcinella Suite complete the programme. Australian-born conductor Jessica Cottis brings her dynamism, intensity and clarity of vision to the performances.
