Preview 6.30pm
David Matthews discusses the work of Benjamin Britten with Artistic Consultant of The Bridgewater Hall Peter Davison.

“More an expression of feeling than a painting” is how Beethoven described his lovely Pastoral Symphony. But this music is so evocative, little is left to the imagination; birds sing and streams flow in this masterful work. Vibrant Italian conductor Antonello Manacorda makes his Bridgewater Hall debut, and brings his glorious sense of song both to Arvo Pärt’s haunting tribute to Britten and Britten’s own endearingly bright-eyed song-cycle Les Illuminations, sung by Lisa Larsson.
