“Thestunning young contralto Jess Dandy offered sumptuous tone and beautifullegato. She’s a name to watch!” [The Times—Neil Fisher]. Jess has performed inNew York’s Carnegie Hall ,The Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the SalzburgFestspielhaus and London’s Royal Albert Hall, amongst other internationalvenues. We have the greatest pleasure in welcoming her to sing Elgar’sbeautiful “Sea Pictures” in the opening concert of our 2023–2024 season. Whenhe visited Italy in 1903, it rained for much of the time, but you will look invain for any trace of the dismal weather he and his wife Alice encountered, forMediterranean sunshine is never far away!
The closing and most substantial work in the programme is Elgar’s magnificentfirst symphony, which received over one hundred performances during its firstyear of existence: come and hear why!
