• Françaix Quartet for cor anglais and strings
  • Bax In Memoriam
  • Pasculli Hommage à Bellini
  • Ibert Trio for violin, cello and harp

Something magical happens when you add a harp to a chamber ensemble – it’s as if the music is just about to lift off. This colourful concert embraces both the French elegance of Jean Françaix and Jacques Ibert, and the Celtic twilight of Arnold Bax, as well as Pasculli’s gloriously songful Homage to Belllini – in which the CBSO’s cor anglais player Rachel Pankhurst turns opera star.
