The Britten centenary celebration continues with aching, exquisite Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings. Britten’s Serenade is complemented by Copland’s exhilarating Cuban Dance and Shostakovich’s farewell to the symphonic form, quoting Rossini and Wagner as gentle rasps of percussion ease the music into the infinite.
