The Philomusica presents four 20th century English string compositions, beginning with Elgar’s exhilarating Introduction and Allegro and ending with two of Britten’s works for string orchestra: the first paying homage to his mentor Frank Bridge, and the second setting six poems by British authors to music. The Serenade will be performed, appropriately, by two outstanding British musicians, including Oxford Philomusica’s own principal horn, Richard Dilley.
