The astonishingly generous and insightful American arts patron, Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge (1864-1953), commissioned A-list composers from several countries to create new pieces. This concert displays both the superlative quality of this magnificent legacy and the diversity of its contents, from the passionate emotional substance of Prokofiev and Bloch, to the cheeky humour shared by the young Britten and the mature Poulenc.
