Summer at Snape: Young Britten

Snape Maltings Concert Hall , Snape, Suffolk, IP17 1SP

For our first concert back in front of a live audience, we’re thrilled to be visiting the beautiful Snape Maltings Concert Hall for a concert of early masterpieces by Britten. The programme includes Britten’s opus 1, the Sinfonietta, written when he was 18 years old and a music student, and the piece he wrote four years later which he described as ‘my real opus 1’, Our Hunting Fathers, with soprano Elizabeth Llewellyn.


Britten Sinfonietta (15’)
Britten Suite for Harp (9′)
Britten arr. Joseph Phibbs
 Our Hunting Fathers (world premiere, commissioned by Britten Pears Arts, 27’)

This performance will last approximately 60 minutes.

Booking opens at 10am on 3rd July:
