The Full Works Concert - Friday 10 October 2014, 8pm

Vivaldi's Gloria and Schubert's Trout Quintet are among the masterpieces to be heard in tonight's Concert.

Vivaldi’s jubilant Gloria in D opens tonight’s Full Works Concert, as we celebrate the start of the weekend. The Gloria is one of sacred music's most uplifting choral works - a piece of high drama and hidden performers.
