Basingstoke Symphony Orchestra presents a programme of respectful, contemplative music for this special Remembrance Sunday.

Promising English composer Butterworth was himself killed in action on the Somme in 1916. Stephen Scotchmer’s Unanswered Prayer is a particularly poignant and appropriate piece for this concert, as is Ravel's antique miniature, Pavane pour une infante défunte.

The concert concludes with Sibelius' short, single-movement Seventh Symphony, his last.
