Corona Strings: Leader, Catherine Leech 
Conductor, Janet Lincé
 

Britten, Variations on a theme of Frank Bridge

Vaughan Williams, Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus

Arensky, Variations on theme of Tchaikovsky

And works by Purcell and Holst

Corona Strings return to SJE with their exciting and engaging playing in a programme of glorious Themes and Variations for strings.  The climax of the evening will undoubtedly be Britten’s amazing Variations on a theme by Frank Bridge whilst the tuneful and joyous world of English folk music is reflected in Vaughan Williams’s Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus and Holst’s ever-popular St Paul’s Suite.  Britten’s version of Purcell’s Chacony complements the programme whilst the evening also includes a Romantic journey to Russia for Arensky’s hugely rewarding Variations on a theme of Tchaikovsky.

Duration: 1 hour 45mins with interval
