St Bartholomew’s Church, Orford

Alwyn – Concerto Grosso Nos 1 and 2
Pehkonen  – Playing with Fire
Britten  – ‘Plymouth Town’ Ballet Music
Beethoven – Symphony No 4

Edmond Fivet – conductor

Britten composed ‘Plymouth Town’ in 1931 when he was just seventeen. It is rarely performed and only received its first staged ballet performance in 2013, the Britten centenary year.
Although a very early piece, the themes of the ballet: good versus evil; redemption; loss of innocence; realisation of adulthood are those Britten constantly returned to in his work.
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear ‘Plymouth Town’ performed in Britten’s beloved Suffolk.
