About this event
To celebrate Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee, the Master of The Queen’s Music has written a one-movement work for orchestra and additional brass sextet, promising ‘a dramatic and virtuoso challenge to all concerned’.
While 1934 saw the birth of Sir Peter, it was also the year in which we lost three key players in Britain’s musical renaissance, Delius not least among them. His Violin Concerto has no more ardent champion than Tasmin Little.
Finally, the symphony often rated Shostakovich’s finest is renewed by tonight’s famously high-voltage Liverpool partnership.
