Tasmin Little and Jeffrey Tate fly over from the UK with an aviary of their favourite free-spirited fancies.

If you’ve ever enjoyed watching a bird hopping and fluttering around effortlessly, you will love Delius’s Violin Concerto. Tasmin is an expert in this music, and you will be captivated as her violin rhapsodises over the orchestra almost non-stop – light, lyrical and utterly content.

A bird of a different feather (clarinet and flute) appears briefly in Wagner’s intimateSiegfried Idyll – a memory of a shared sunrise, a token of love, and surely one of the most romantic birthday presents ever given.

Brahms’ wrote his Third Symphony while on summer holiday in a town overlooking the Rhine. There is a great sense of freedom in this music, sometimes heroic, sometimes calm and thoughtful. Everyone loves the wistful melody of the third movement, and the way Brahms ends the piece with a deep, happy sigh.
