Marking 100 years since Armistice was declared, the Nash Ensemble explores powerful chamber music written both before and after World War I.

With Frederick Delius’ lilting and optimistic Air and Dance of 1915; Arthur Bliss’ post-war portrait of a bustling and vibrant society, from ‘The Ballroom’ to the ‘Tube at Oxford Circus’; and Gurney’s song cycle, a love letter to the English countryside, this programme is also testament to resilience in the face of fear.
