Britten Sinfonia
Jacqueline Shave
Ian Bostridge tenor

World-renowned tenor Ian Bostridge concludes Britten Sinfonia’s first Barbican season, performing repertoire weaving themes of sleep and night with the music of Schubert and Britten. This evocative programme includes the premiere of three Schubert songs arranged for voice and orchestra by Detlev Glanert, a composer acclaimed for his lyrical gifts and modern perspective on the Romantic past. The concert closes with Britten’s magical and dream-like orchestral song cycle Nocturne , to mark his centenary year.
