AYM, Britten Pears and Middle Eastern young artists: New Nocturnes – a photo diary

The Britten Centenary Weekend in 2013 featured an exhilarating first collaboration between two of Aldeburgh Music’s flagship young artist programmes, that produced composer Alex Woolf’s Serenade. A year later they combine again, alongside young Middle Eastern orchestral musicians from a new Aldeburgh Music initiative, as two young composers, Samantha Fernando and Jay Richardson turn to Britten’s original for inspiration for their own joint Nocturne song cycle on themes of sleep and dreams.
