Arcadia Event 6

4 pm Sunday 2nd Oct, St Giles Downton SY8 2HU
Adam Gorb String Quartet no 1 (2001), Barber Dover Beach, 
Elgar String Quartet, Haydn String Quartet op 76 no 5

A final chance to hear the beauty of Jeremy Huw Williams’ baritone voice. The rich adventure of Adam Gorb’s 2001 string quartet and Samuel Barber’s setting of Matthew Arnold’s much quoted Dover Beach form the centre of Arcadia’s final concert. Elgar’s only completed string quartet and Joseph Haydn bring us home to a world of more familiar comforts and joys – or do they? Judge for yourself.
