Concert 2 - Adieu 'Fairest Isle' / 18:00

“Longing, love and loss from the British Isles”

Europe lost a beloved member of its union…’a sad thing’. In this concert we will discover some of the beautiful music of this special island, from the old sounds of Purcell, via the romantic nostalgia of Bridge and Vaughan Williams to the new sounds of Thomas Adès inspired by Shakespeare’s “The Tempest”.
