Andrew Manze, conductor

Respighi's beautiful suite The Birds, with its skilful arrangements of music from the 16th and 17th century, complements the Concerto for double string orchestra which Tippett wrote in 1939 which also harks back to earlier times. Widely regarded as one of the composer's most popular works it is heavily influenced by folk-song, the music of Purcell and 17th century English madrigals. Andrew Manze brings his own arrangement of an enchanting work by William Lawes, once described by Charles I as the 'father of musik', and the evening comes to a lively close with Mozart's great E flat symphony.
