The English Chamber Orchestra has a long tradition of promoting young artists, and this concert features Ben Goldscheider, 2016 finalist of BBC Young Musician and BBC Music Magazine ‘Rising Star’. He is joined by the acclaimed tenor Ben Johnson, a former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist. Both musicians feature in Britten’s much-loved Serenade, a song cycle composed for Britten’s lifelong companion Peter Pears which was performed by the ECO at the 2013 Proms with none other than Ben Johnson as the soloist.

Ravel’s exuberant Le tombeau de Couperin and Stravinsky’s Baroque-inspired Pulcinella Suite complete the programme. Australian-born conductor Jessica Cottis brings her dynamism, intensity and clarity of vision to the performances.
