CORONA STRINGS: Conductor, Janet Lincé
Corona Strings with internationally acclaimed baritone Roderick Williams bring you a concert on the theme of love and loss. The highlight of the evening will be a newly commissioned work composed and premiered by Roderick Williams as soloist and the evening culminates in the title work, Gerald Finzi’s exquisite song cycle Let us garlands bring in the version for baritone and string orchestra. The programme also features Dag Wirén’s joyous Serenade in contrast with the profoundly moving Concertino Pastorale by John Ireland.
Corona Strings is Oxford’s premier professional string orchestra which has delighted audiences since 2012 with its exciting programming and dynamic sound. Under the direction of conductor Janet Lincé, performances have included Britten’s song cycles Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings and Les illuminations as well as the great romantic Serenades of Tchaikovsky and Dvořák and works by Sibelius and Mahler.
