English String Music

Elgar’s gentle Serenade and Delius’ Two Watercolours are both evocative of a Spring night. Holst and Warlock’s suites of joyful dance music are virtuosic and exciting. You can also hear Purcell’s piquant Three Fantazias along with the music for Abdelazer, which includes the theme Benjamin Britten used for his Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
