Beethoven’s sublime G major classic has a special place in the working relationship of Madeleine Mitchell and Geoffrey Poole. It is the work that first brought them together as a performing duo. Hawkwood’s beautiful Cotswold location with its fine 250 year-old sycamore is the setting for this concert of music by Severnside composers whose work draws inspiration from a variety of spiritual sources.

Severnside Composers Alliance (SCA) was formed in 2002 by a group of composers based in the Bristol, Bath and Gloucestershire area to promote performances of their own music and to stimulate a wider interest in the composition and performance of new music in the region.
