James MacMillan said of ‘A Different World’ that it expresses “a yearning for an imaginary world where lovers’ dreams might be fulfilled”. It opens this concert by two of the most highly acclaimed musicians of the new generation – Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver both have glittering international careers as soloists, recitalists and chamber musicians. Their performance of Beethoven’s mighty ‘Kreutzer Sonata is a ‘must hear’, and the programme is completed by Prokofiev’s Five Melodies and the sumptuous Violin Sonata by Richard Strauss.
