Britten–Pears Young Artists
A pioneering duo formed by two of today’s leading instrumentalists performing music written especially for them is an electrifying prospect. After a first half performed by the duo alone, they are joined by masterclass participants to present music from Britten’s fanfare for a Suffolk cathedral to some of Steve Reich’s iconic series of works for multiple percussionists.
