In Memoriam Benjamin Britten

Date: Friday 20th September 2013 19:30

Venue: Manchester Town Hall, Manchester

The season opens in the stunning surroundings of Manchester Town Hall with Arvo P&art&s beautifully atmospheric elegy, Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten. We celebrate Britten&s centenary year in a programme coupling the youthful composer&s work with that of a young Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, with whom he had such a close affinity. Mozart&s Concerto for Flute and Harp is one of the composer&s most loved of concertos, performed here by principal flute, Amina Hussain, and former harpist to the Prince of Wales, Claire Jones. The programme concludes with the eighteen-year-old Mozart&s 29th Symphony, a work brimming with energy, invention and joy.


Samantha McShane, Camerata’s Head of Creative Programming,discusses Britten the opera composer with Stefan Janski, Head of Opera at the RNCM.
