Concert: The Spirit of England

Three gems of the British chamber music repertoire are featured in this English tribute: Vaughan Williams’s atmospheric settings of A.E. Housman poems, Britten's expressive Phantasy Quartet and Elgar’s majestic Piano Quintet. Tenor Andrew Kennedy, known for his dramatic performances in song and opera, and celebrated rising-star Orion Weiss make their Da Camera debuts.

“[Orion Weiss] played with scintillating charm…All the necessary responses to the music came naturally - charm, pliant phrasing, dazzling speed in fast-movement runs.”—Houston Chronicle
