Paris in the Spring

Earlier in March Britten Sinfonia musicians travelled to Paris for a performance as part of the At Lunch series. The concert took place at Musée d'Orsay and featured Schubert's Trout Quintet alongside a new work by Simon Holt entitled everything turns away. The performance was recorded and subsequently broadcast by Radio France. Below are some photos from the trip
