Enjoy wonderful interludes from opera, theatre and ballet, along with an evergreen favourite from Holst, against the stunning backdrop of Buxton’s historic St John’s Church.
Dramatic, early works – hinting at genius – from Mendelssohn and Shostakovich fire up experimental sparks, while Debussy’s atmospheric, sometimes sensuous Danses showcase the wonderful qualities of the harp.
