An exciting element of this year’s Governor’s Gala concert is the world premiere of the third Lorca song by our Composer-in-Residence Paul Stanhope. To have one of the UK’s foremost baritones with us to sing glorious and colourful Ravel is another coup! And of course, Mendelssohn’s evergreen Octet, composed, extraordinarily when he was still sixteen, is one of the jewels in the chamber music crown.
