Jacaranda joins the global celebration of Benjamin Britten’s centenary by devoting its current season’s final three concerts to a broad survey of Britten’s music. April 7’s concert takes its theme from February House, the storied Brooklyn residence where Britten and his partner, tenor Peter Pears, lived in the early 1940s with legendary writers and others including Carson McCullers, W.H. Auden, Paul and Jane Bowles. Australian pianists Liam Viney and Anna Rosenberg will perform solo, four-hands and two-piano works by Britten, Bowles, and February House party guests, composers Aaron Copland, Virgil Thomson and Colin McPhee. Clarinetist Stuart Clark and oboist Keve Wilson will guest in chamber music.
