About the event

A set of favourite German Lieder are the centrepiece of this concert, flanked by music with vocal inspiration: on one side by Hindemith's Opus 11 No. 4 Viola Sonata, one of his most lyrical works; and on the other by the elegiac and highly expressive Arnold Bax Harp Quintet, reflecting his love of all things Irish, and written in the waning days of WW1. To send you humming into the summer afternoon, Massenet's beloved Meditation for violin and harp will be just the ticket.
