DVOŘÁKThe Noon WitchListen
LUTOSŁAWSKICello ConcertoListen
ARVO PÄRTCantus in memoriam Benjamin BrittenListen
BARTÓKMusic for Strings, Percussion and CelestaListen

 


Discover the unique flavours of Eastern Europe in this thoughtful programme. From Dvorák’s thrilling dark tale of the witch who arrives at the stroke of midday to take away a naughty child, to the strange harmonies of Bartók’s Music - used to chilling in The Shining by director Stanley Kubrick. This concert also pays tribute to two important musical centenaries – Arvo Pärt’s touching memorial for Benjamin Britten, and Witold Lutosławski’s powerful cello concerto.
