A rare chance to enjoy the solo beauty of the bassoon in a programme of romantic and lyrical music.The bassoon steps elegantly into the limelight in two showcase works for the instrument: Elgar's sweet, gentle, poetic and singing Romance and Franz Berwald's playful, elegant and warming Konzertstück. Sibelius's richly romantic, yearningly emotional, dramatic and mysterious Karelia Suite continues the Scandinavian connection in a programme that begins which Warlock's captivating re-imagining of Renaissance dances.
