The St. Peter's Chamber Orchestra, one of Oxford's most talented ensembles, presents a programme of some of the twentieth century's most powerful music for string orchestra. Shostakovich's bleak and intimate Chamber Symphony is paired with Elgar's gorgeous miniature, Sospiri, while Richard Strauss's shattering late masterwork, the Metamorphosen for 23 solo strings, is performed alongside 'Morgen!', a beautiful song from his youth. It promises to be a deeply moving evening in the company of some of Oxford's finest musicians.
