  1. A Downland Suite, for brass ensemble - John Ireland
  2. Concerto for horn and strings - Matthew Taylor
  3. Variations on a theme of Frank Bridge Op 10 - Benjamin Britten

A horn concerto that "draws its wellsprings of inspiration from the great symphonic tradition with considerable inventive flair, economy of thought and wit" (Gramophone Review) is performed by Orchestra of the Swan's principal horn Francesca Moore-Bridger. This is matched with an Ireland masterpiece originally written for brass band, later arranged for string orchestra, and ending with the work which catapulted Britten onto the international music scene.
