Tchaikovsky - The Great Romantic - T970259001

Tchaikovsky revered Mozart above all composers and although his Serenade for Strings has hints of Russian romanticism, at its heart is a tribute to Mozart's classical style. The Arensky is another tribute from one composer to another and an enchanting work in its own right. Under the direction of David Curtis, Orchestra of the Swan has achieved national recognition for outstanding performances, innovative programming and engaging presentation.

Cream Teas - An English Genius - T1210077590

In the early years of the 20th century there was a musical renaissance with composers such as [Vaughan Williams] and [Holst] re-discovering the music of their masters. Perhaps one of the most striking examples is the Variations on a Theme of Thomas Tallis by [Vaughan Williams]. Not only do we celebrate the renaissance of music but tonight's programme celebrates the centenary of Sir [William Walton], one of the most distinctive voices from the last century.
