Ensemble 360 performs a programme featuring chamber music by composers who eagerly embraced the opportunity to write for film.
Sir Arthur Bliss’s Conversations shows his characteristic inventiveness and wit. Its final movement, ‘In the Tube at Oxford Circus’, is a wonderful evocation of the hustle and bustle of London life.
Eric Coates, a distinguished professional viola player, was best-known for his irresistible light compositions. Souvenir was dedicated to his son Austin, who said of the piece, “it was so beautiful I could never forget it.”
Sir Arnold Bax’s Oboe Quintet is full of lush, orchestral string writing. He was often inspired by Britain and Ireland, and the influence of Irish folk tunes is readily apparent in this piece.
Please note this concert is approximately an hour and ten minutes in duration with no interval.
