The Tenor of Nature
Live from Earth Music Bristol at St George's
Presented by Petroc Trelawny
As part of Earth Music Bristol, some of BBC Radio 3's New Generation Artists, current and past, perform a programme entitled "The Tenor of Nature".
From the rapturous and tender settings by Vaughan Williams and Ivor Gurney of poems from A E Housman's A Shropshire Lad to Elgar's poignant Piano Quintet, this is a concert inspired by the natural beauty of the English countryside.
