Britten Sinfonia at St. Andrew's Hall
The programme consisted of German Dances - Schubert arr. Webern, Five Movements - Webern, Lieder - Schubert arr. Webern, Ruckert Lieder - Mahler and Symphony No.5 - Schubert. From the full moon shines on mountaintops from Schubert's Romanze aus Rosamunde to his splendid emotional Symphony No.5 on to Mahler's If you love for beauty this was a programme full of classical music treats.
Britten Sinfonia along with baritone Roderick Williams gave us a performance of the highest quality with a programme that showed the versatility of Britten Sinfonia and the brilliant vocal skills of Roderick Williams. Its great to have Britten Sinfonia playing regularly in Norwich at the Assembly House and Theatre Royal while their Festival appearance at St. Andrew's Hall are always special events.
