We're invoking the wild and the pastoral to open the 2023 Cheltenham Music Festival.
Celebrating the work of Ralph Vaughan Williams through the much-loved The Lark Ascending, the concert features a new work from James B Wilson (Last Night of the Proms composer 2022) responding to Vaughan Williams’s ideas and philosophies. Plus, enjoy Richard Rodney Bennett’s joyful Partita and a vivid performance of Beethoven’s lyrical sixth symphony.
