Homelands – the importance of the traditions, character and colour of where we come from – is the focus of Resonance Ensemble’s next concert with music by Smetana, Grieg, Rossini and Britten.

Even more entertaining are Britten’s two suites based on the music of Rossini. If Rossini’s comic operas are not already humorous enough, in the Matinées Musicales and Soirées Musicales Britten adds a degree of sparkling wit that is pure delight, especially in the imaginatively-devised performance that Resonance Ensemble will present.
