Festival Director’s Farewell

Sunday, 23 June at 3.00 pm

Mark Padmore tenor
Richard Watkins solo horn
Stour Festival Orchestra
Margot Rusmanis leader
Mark Deller conductor

This cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, be regarded as an early music programme, but as Stour has sometimes ventured into the 20th (and even the 21st) century on occasions, for his last concert with the Stour Festival Orchestra, the retiring Festival Director has chosen an unashamedly self-indulgent programme of works, all of which had a profound effect in shaping his musical life.

Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis
Britten Serenade for tenor, horn & strings
Finzi Dies Natalis
Tippett Concerto for Double String Orchestra
