Cancelled/postponed: Into the Forest

7:30pm, Sat, 16 May 2020

  • Event Details
  • Type of event: BWE Concert
    Duration: About 2 hours
    Venue: St James's Church, Sussex Gardens, Paddington, London, W2 3UD

    We had expected that Shea Lolin would conduct the Bloomsbury Woodwind Ensemble as it performs a collection of scores invoking a strong sense of narrative - but Covid-19 has scuppered our plans. We hope to be able to put on the concert later in the year.

    Poets, artists, composers and story-tellers have long found the forest to be a source of intrigue which had helped to inspire the programme that was going to include:

    • Richard Wagner Siegfried – Forest Murmurs
    • Antonín Dvo?ák From the Bohemian Forest – Silent Woods 7
    • Arnold Bax November Woods
    • Johann Strauss II Tales from the Vienna Woods
    • Felix Mendelssohn Farewell to the Forest
    • Samuel Barber Vanessa – Under the Willow Tree
