In between, our team of French Horns have their day with Schumann’s Konzert Stucke and we also celebrate the world of melody with a UK première of outstanding songs for tenor and orchestra by the Worcester-based composer, Ian Venables. His ‘Venetian Songs’ will be sung by renowned Indian tenor Anando Mukerjee, accompanied by the Orchestra, all under the direction of our conductor, Richard Jenkinson.
