The Chamber Ensemble of London is directed by the violinist Peter Fisher, amongst a handful of the world’s finest musicians.


This concert of popular British music for strings opens with an exuberant overture by Handel’s great friend John Christopher Smith (1712-1795). Music by Delius and Vaughan Williams is paired with Clive Jenkins’s entertaining Concertino, with piano soloist Margaret Fingerhut, who also plays in Finzi’s hauntingly elegiac Eclogue. The concert finishes with Britten’s ever-popular Simple Symphony from the 1930s, four highly colourful movements reworked from music he had written as a teenager.
