About This Event

Anna Clyne, one of Britain’s most exciting young composers, describes Night Ferry as ‘music of voyages, from stormy darkness to enchanted worlds’. True, but that hardly captures the thrilling turbulence of the ride it takes into uncharted waters. Listen closely and you might hear echoes of the similarly restless Symphonie fantastique – but in truth Berlioz’s utterly wild work, written under the twin influences of opium and unrequited love, is like nothing else. In between, Vaughan Williams’s beloved classic of the English rural springtime injects a welcome note of tranquillity.
