Never miss another 'Britten Sinfonia' show
Young Britten And Beethoven: Britten Sinfonia, Angela Hewitt
The brilliance of popular pieces by the young Britten is matched by two other exuberant masterworks by composers also in their twenties: the quirky charm of Prokofiev and the rugged impetuosity of Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto played by Angela Hewitt and the outstanding Britten Sinfonia.
Britten - Simple Symphony
Beethoven - Piano Concerto No 2
Britten - Variations on a theme of Frank Bridge
Prokofiev - Symphony No 1, Classical

Britten Sinfonia is one of the world's most celebrated and pioneering ensembles. The orchestra is an Associate Ensemble at the Barbican, has residencies in Norwich, Cambridge and Brighton, and a chamber series at Wigmore Hall. Britten Sinfonia enjoys a growing international profile, and is frequently heard on disc, BBC Radio 3 and commercial radio.
'But as always with this orchestra there was more to savour than just stellar performance. The programme was ingeniously shaped' (Ivan Hewett, The Daily Telegraph)
'The playing was marked by the kind of luminous and infectious beauty that only comes from a true marriage of mastery and love' (The Times0
'The UK's most consistently dynamic chamber ensemble' (The New Statesman).
