Mark Padmore, Britten Sinfonia

Celebrated tenor Mark Padmore joins the Britten Sinfonia in some of the most beautiful English music for voice and orchestra. The centrepiece is Britten's magical evocation of twilight and nightfall, the 'Serenade' (with Stephen Bell, horn).

In Gerald Finzi's war-time cycle 'Dies natalis', the ecstatic mood reflects a child's wide-eyed wonder at the world. Britten's poignant 'Nocturne' completes the programme.

"in tenor Mark Padmore the Sinfonia have found its ideal exponent. Austere yet intense, Padmore’s sound is extraordinarily distinctive... the result is an evanescent beauty which Padmore caught to perfection." Michael Church, The Independent

"Padmore was alternately dark and wide-eyed visionary in the extraordinary nocturnal projections of Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings. Here, too, was an object-lesson of how to wait in repose while another protagonist took centre-stage – Stephen Bell, achieving marvels on both natural and 'modern' horns, something I’ve never seen juggled before in this wonderful work." Christopher Morley, Birmingham Post

"their account of Dies Natalis is exceptional, a reminder that this setting of poems by Thomas Traherne is one of the masterpieces of 20th-century English music. Padmore made it much more warmly expressive, the childhood innocence and wonder of the texts joyously conveyed, and the balance between voice and strings ideal" Andrew Clements, The Guardian
