Joby Talbot A Sheen of Dew on Flowers (new work)
Celebrating the bi-centenary of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert's birth Britten Sinfonia and Independent Opera join forces to present the first public performance of Joby Talbot's new cantata, A Sheen of Dew on Flowers. Setting some of the most beautiful poetry from across the ages with themes of love and loss, this new work will celebrate one of the greatest and enduring marriages in history.
Britten Sinfonia is one of the world's most celebrated and pioneering ensembles. The orchestra is acclaimed for its virtuoso musicianship, an inspired approach to concert programming which makes bold, intelligent connections across 400 years of repertoire, and a versatility that is second to none. Britten Sinfonia breaks the mould by not having a principal conductor or director, instead choosing to collaborate with a range of the finest international guest artists from across the musical spectrum, resulting in performances of rare insight and energy.www.brittensinfonia.com/
