We return to Wigmore Hall to celebrate the musical legacy of Benjamin Britten, collaborating with tenor Allan Clayton, soprano Sophie Bevan and composer/conductor Brett Dean. This mesmerising programme pairs Britten’s Serenade, which premiered at Wigmore Hall in 1943, with his Rimbaud settings of Les Illuminations and a new work by Josephine Stephenson written for Allan Clayton.
