Sheffield's resident chamber musicians Ensemble 360, with storyteller Hugh Lupton, present:
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Six studies in English Folksong
FINZI Interlude for oboe and string quartet Op.21
BARTÓK Duos for two violins (selection)
MARTINŮ Variations on a Slovakian Theme for cello and piano
Expert storyteller Hugh Lupton will spin a magical web of tales passed down through the ages in two carefully curated concerts.
In the first, Ensemble 360 performs a selection of beautiful works by masters of English, Hungarian and Czech music, all of which demonstrate how stories have inspired some great composers.
Hugh Lupton is one of Britain’s leading storytellers. He has worked with a glittering array of poets and musicians and received commissions from the National Theatre and BBC Radio, and has appeared at the Barbican Centre, Hay Festival, Bath Literature Festival and Edinburgh Festival.
