Classical Chromatics: From English Pastures to Beyond

Clare Martin

Clare Martin from Classical Chromatics focuses on English music mainly from the twentieth century. From the pastoral sounds of Vaughan Williams to the vocal and orchestral music of Benjamin Britten with some wild cards in between.  

The programme is dedicated to Clare's English friends who are not able to perform due to the terrible situation with COVID-19 in the UK. This programme remembers some of the performance opportunities Clare had during her 17 years in England performing with various orchestras and choirs. 

Artists include Tasmin Little, the Hallé Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus, the Flesch Quartet, the BBC Singers, and the Sacconi Quartet.
