Concert Information

Wit, humour, and an unerring ability to cock a snook in all manner of directions were the hallmark of that group of friends and contemporaries christened Les Six in 1920s Paris. This concert presents choral selections from members of the group - including Darius Milhaud's depiction of the Birth of Venus, and some light-hearted Chansons françaises by Francis Poulenc and Georges Auric. Plus - a bonus - Poulenc's Sonata for Four Hands played by the soloists in tonight's BBC SO performance of the Concerto for Two Pianos.

This early-evening concert complements and precedes the Poulenc, Roussel and Ravel BBC Symphony Orchestra concert in the Barbican Hall on the same evening. Ticket-holders can purchase £8 tickets to Singers at Six.
