Britten Serenade at Brown Theatre
Philip Glass' liner notes for his third symphony suggest that a string orchestra has its own sound that is both rhythmic and lyrical, a mixture of the bite of horsehair on strings, the plonk of pizzicato, and a singer's long cantabile phrases. Also featured is Benjamin Britten's much loved Serenade, which consists of six poems by British writers set to music and book-ended by solos for unaccompanied horn.
