Violinist Terje Tønnesen directs Camerata Nordica. With viola player Catherine Bullock.
Britten : 'Simple Symphony'
Tippett: Little Music for Strings
Britten : Elegy for strings ( World Premiere)
Walton: Sonata for Strings
(The focus on Benjamin Britten and his contemporaries continues with the world premiere of his Elegy for strings. Written six years before the 'Simple Symphony', this eloquent early miniature is contrasted with works by Tippett and Walton in the Proms debut of Camerata Nordica.)
