Summary

Four-hundred-and-one years after the Voyage of the Mayflower, Lincolnshire International Chamber Music Festival commemorates this event with a specially commissioned work entitled Voyage of the Mayflower by American composer, Jon Paul Mayse, who has set a new text by American poet, Peter Wolrich. Artist-in-Residence, Mark Padmore together with one of Britain’s most loved ensembles, Britten Sinfonia, gives the work its world premiere. As well as favourites by Mozart and Beethoven, audiences will have the chance to experience a not-so-frequent outing of Warlock’s The Curlew – one of the most powerfully striking compositions in the English musical timeline.
