Tenderness, melting melodies, and a haunting strain of bittersweet nostalgia link the items in this glorious concert of English music from Saffron Walden Symphony Orchestra. The ever-popular Enigma Variations (which include the sublimely heartbreaking variation ‘Nimrod’) are partnered with several equally beautiful pastoral gems, including Moeran’s Lonely Waters, an evocative masterpiece of restrained melancholy based on a lilting Norfolk folk-tune.
This concert will finish at approximately 9.10pm
