Barnes Music Festival: Opening Concert
Saturday 9 March St Mary's Barnes
7.30pm, Tickets £20
Rising star Fenella Humphreys plays Max Richter’s 2012 ‘‘recomposition’ of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, a work already recognised as one of the most ingenious compositions of the 21st Century.
The first half features St Paul’s School and St Paul's Girls’ School in the glorious Vivaldi’s Gloria which is set against Biber’s eccentric Batalia and Tibetan Winter by renowned British composer and Festival patron, Roxanna Panufnik (whose most recent work included the BBC Last Night of the Proms commission).
