Havergal Brian, The Vision of Cleopatra (orch. John Pickard)
We present the first performance in modern times of Havergal Brian’s The Vision of Cleopatra, an exotic and highly original retelling of the Antony and Cleopatra story. First performed in 1909, the orchestral score and parts were destroyed in the Blitz in 1941. John Pickard’s newly prepared orchestration of the work receives its world premiere in this concert.
Sponsored by the Havergal Brian Society.
