The UK's only professional string orchestra, led by Artistic Director Jonathan Morton, returns to Wigmore Hall with a concert to celebrate Benjamin Britten's approaching centenary year. The programme casts light on music by composers close to Britten's heart and builds on his legacy of arranging chamber works for larger ensembles.
