The music from the north-eastern quadrant of Europe and its big neighbour to the east is incredibly rich in its sound. The content of this final concert of the 2015-16 season draws on the choral repertoire of Arvo Pärt (Estonia), Henryk Gorecki (Poland) [right], and Rachmaninov (Russia). In addition there will be works by two British composers - Charles Wood & John Tavener, the latter being a repeat of his work Svyati that was such a hit at last summer's concert.
As a bonus cellist Léonie Adams will play Rachmaninov's Sonata for cello & piano in G minor (op 19), accompanied by Michael Higgins.
