Britten Sinfonia’s principals close this commemorative series with a showcase including Britten’s solo works. Featured is Britten’s rarely performed Suite for Harp and oboe masterpiece Six Metamorphoses after Ovid. No retrospective would be complete without the man who so profoundly influenced Britten’s musical development. Bridge’s Two Old English Songs and Sir Roger de Coverley are two of his most-loved works and show Bridge’s exemplary writing for strings. The winner of Britten Sinfonia’s open composition competition, Opus 2013 receives its premiere.


Divertimento was co-commissioned by Wigmore Hall and Britten Sinfonia.
