Hailed as the “International Orchestra of Elgar Country,” the English String Orchestra bring two works by Britain’s greatest composer with them for their first concert in the Stafford Gatehouse Theatre. The programme opens with one of the most evergreen of string orchestra favourites, Elgar’s youthful Serenade for Strings, and continues with a modern addition to the Elgar canon – Donald Fraser’s acclaimed arrangement of Elgar’s Songs for Strings.  Zoë Beyers, the ESO’s Leader, takes a solo turn in Vaughan Williams’ Lark Ascending, recently voted Britain’s favourite piece of classical music. The programme concludes with Tchaikovksy’s colourful Souvenir de Florence.
