English at heart
A NEW work by classical composer Herbert Howells gets its first airing for the launch of a groundbreaking festival.
The English Music Festival is a celebration of Britain's rich musical heritage.
Organisers pride themselves on presenting world premières of important new musical discoveries by composers such as Vaughan Williams, Delius, Britten and Cheltenham's own Holst.
Howells' Violin Sonata in B Minor is part of the flagship concert of the festival's inaugural autumn series, The Cotswold Collection at Pittville Pump Room.
