Serenade: Mozart, Borodin, Dvorak and Tchaikovsky
A delightful orchestral concert at St Martin-in-the-Fields
London is a fast-paced, manic city. What with our busy days of commutes and email-sending, there's never much time where we can stop and reflect. Where we can pause. Where we can listen. But, if you look carefully, you can find beacons of calm between the chaos. A venue which provides regular respite is St Martin-in-the-Fields, renowned the world over for its beautiful architecture and classical concerts, enhanced by the rich acoustics of the church. On this occasion, you can witness Serenade bringing The Orchestra Of St Paul's – one of London's most dynamic chamber orchestras – to St Martin's for the first time to perform four of the best-loved works in the string orchestra repertoire, detailed in the programme below. So, pause. Take a second. Listen and experience. Programme: - Orchestra of St Paul’s - Conductor: Ben Palmer - Mozart: Eine kleine Nachtmusik - Dvořàk: Serenade for Strings - Borodin: Nocturne from String Quartet No 2 - Tchaikovsky: Serenade for Strings Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time. Latecomers may not be admitted.
