Evocative and cinematic music transports us from sunrise on the open ocean, through the stillness of moonlight reflected on the water, to a violent storm at sea. English composer Benjamin Britten takes us on this extraordinary journey with his Four Sea Interludes, from his opera Peter Grimes. Italian composer Ottorino Respighi inspires us with his glorious visions of wonder as he vividly describes the fountains of Rome. Come with us on this wet and wonderful ride, featuring the talented winners of our young musicians competition.
