WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Orchestra of the Swan, one of the UKs leading chamber orchestras, makes their debut in Chelmsford with a youthful programme featuring composer and pianist, Huw Watkins. The Welsh composer has been working with the orchestra as their Composer-in-the-House, a Royal Philharmonic Society/PRS for Music initiative, and tonight's programme includes his new work, Little Symphony, which Orchestra of the Swan shall perform across the country in a Beyond the Premiere series with Orchestras Live. The youthful celebrations continue with an acknowledgement of Britten's genius as composer and pianist in a wonderful performance of his Young Apollo for piano and strings and Mozart's Piano Concert K414 which Britten frequently performed.
