His beautiful and evocative musical landscape Heart Of The Five Valleys will feature alongside the world premiere of his recent composition Symphonia Pandemica.
A highlight of this concert will be The Lark Ascending by Vaughan William, voted as the UK’s favourite classical piece and performed by John Pearce, a violinist of “immense technical grasp…passionate commitment to everything he plays.” Venue
