Idyll - music of the pastoral and the picturesque
Music has a unique ability to paint an idealised picturesque world well beyond the prosaic reality of our lived experience: from the mythology of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas to the contemporary rural bliss of Elgar’s Sea Pictures; from the tranquility of Alfen’s Still, Still the Woods to the passionate allegory of Sibelius’ Captive Queen.

In this concert we explore a range of mainly English and Scandinavian pastoral works which paint idyllic pictures of worlds we can only imagine.
