Following the fantastic audience reception to the performance of Holst’s ‘The Planets’ in March, the English Sinfonia continue their residency with a Summer concert celebrating the Platinum Jubilee year of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The concert will present music that would have been heard in the year of the Queen’s Coronation in 1953 alongside a World Premiere of Nicholas Korth’s ‘Jubilare – An Enigmatic Fanfare’, all culminating in Elgar’s incomparable Enigma Variations.

The programme will include:
Elgar’s Enigma Variations (arr. Morton for 15 players)
World premiere of ‘Jubilare – An Enigmatic Fanfare’ by Nicholas Korth

English Sinfonia

The English Sinfonia is one of the earliest established chamber orchestras in the UK, well-known for their engaging interpretations of British music.

Under the leadership of distinguished violinist Janice Graham, today’s orchestra is a versatile and flexible ensemble, formed of a core group of well-established players each at the height of their career, who as individuals perform music of many genres in a variety of settings, from symphonic and chamber music, opera and ballet to commercial music and film/tv soundtracks. Spanning almost six decades, the orchestra’s discography is rich in 19th and 20th century music, including both familiar and lesser-known works by Holst, Butterworth, Vaughan Williams and Bridge.

“With a musician like Graham at its helm, it’s no wonder the English Sinfonia has earned such a prominent place on the international music scene.”
