Following their recent sell-out performances, Bath Camerata join forces with Grammy award-winner Lucy Schaufer (Artistic Director of Wild Plum Arts) and leading pianist Huw Watkins to present a dazzling programme about creation and destruction. Beloved repertoire by Bach, Haydn and Stravinsky is subtly paired with contemporary works by four outstanding living female composers for an exhilarating evening of contrasts and refined musicianship.
