ENCHANTED


Benjamin Britten: Lachrymae
Pēteris Vasks: Plainscapes for piano trio
Edward Elgar: Piano quintet

Peteris Vasks’ luminous. soaring Plainscapes is a tribute to the wide horizons of his Latvian homeland, but in its amazing climax it glories in Nature generally. It is sandwiched between two British masterpieces, Britten’s mysterious and moving echo of the Elizabethan John Dowland, and Elgar’s hugely compassionate piano quintet, which may just be his response to the carnage of the Great War. 

Duration: 1 hour with no interval
