Written in memory of her mother, Within Her Arms by the SCO’s Associate Composer Anna Clyne, is a powerful mediation on love and loss.
Composed during World War II, Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings sets to music six poems about the world of night, by some of the most famous names in literature including Tennyson, Keats and Blake. Its opening and closing sequence of softly intoned horn calls, hauntingly evoke a twilight atmosphere of stillness and sadness.
