BRITTEN: Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings
MENDELSSOHN: Symphony No. 5, “Reformation”
Britten’s lush serenade evokes the world of night. Through a twilit atmosphere set by muted horn and strings, the tenor offers English poetry exploring dreamscapes both beautiful and haunting. Despite its weighty title, Mendelssohn’s symphony is a jaunty romp, a celebration of Luther’s triumph during the Reformation.
