800th celebrations in snow-dusted Krakow
Cambridge alumni from Krakow and Warsaw joined Britten Sinfonia for the world premiere of Ryan Wigglesworth's Tenebrae yesterday, commissioned with funds from the University of Cambridge to celebrate its 800th anniversary. The concert was followed by a reception at the Radisson SAS hotel, where Britten Sinfonia's partnership with the Academy of Music in Krakow was also marked. Nicholas Daniel stayed on to give an oboe masterclass in a Creative Learning programme funded by the British Council.
