CONCERT REVIEW: Serenading Lincs with Britten Sinfonia, Mark Padmore (tenor), Morgan Szymanski (guitar) and Martin Horn (horn), Crowland Abbey, Lincolnshire Rural and Community Touring
From the first moment when the bows slid across the stringed instruments on Sunday night, the Britten Sinfonia filled Crowland Abbey with magic.
The Serenading Lincs tour of four venues in the county by one of the most accomplished classical ensembles in the world, came to South Holland with works by English composer Henry Purcell, Hungarian Bela Bartok, Benjamin Britten and contemporary English composer Alec Roth.
In just 64 minutes, the sinfonia transpired to heights, depths, breadths and lengths of sound really heard in the flatlands of England.
