About This Performance

For its PCMS debut, the Heath Quartet presents a program linking two of England’s most acclaimed 20th century composers: Benjamin Britten and Michael Tippett. The two composers were good friends, with a high level of mutual respect and much in common. Yet while Britten’s music has been performed almost daily since his death, performances of Tippett are rarer, and his music is ripe for rediscovery.

Please note: Violinist Sara Wolstenholme is on maternity leave and must regretfully withdraw from this performance. Natalie Klouda will perform in her place.
