The sounds of Paris are reflected across the centuries in this finale of the season. Providing the centrepiece to the programme is Duruflé’s Requiem setting based on ancient plainsong melodies, preceded by Fauré’s Pavane with its ancient dance forms and Ravel’s tribute to the earlier French composer, Couperin. Composer Charlotte Bray provides the final instalment in our ‘Bach RE:Imagined’ series.

We are moving offices this week – during this time our telephone system will be down and we won’t be able to receive emails.
You can still book tickets online, and we expect to be back to normal by the morning of Thursday 14 April. We aren’t moving far so our address will remain the same.
You can keep up to date by following us on Twitter @CityLdnSinfonia, and this is the best place to get in touch for any urgent enquiries you have.
In a new partnership with Amelia Singer, the writer and presenter of Jamie Oliver’s popular drinkstube.com and founder of Amelia’s Wines, we are pleased to offer an add-on wine experience for this programme.
