Gerald Finzi (1901-1956) was born of Jewish/German parents although he is remembered as a quintessentially ‘English’ composer influenced by folk music. However, he also held a passion for masters of the German and English Baroque music, particularly JS Bach and William Boyce. The ‘mourning’ of Haydn’s dramatic Symphony No.44 is in memory of his death in September 1956.

Today's events

'Searching' season

This year Peninsula Arts have brought together a talented team of curators, artists and academic advisors to present a line-up of exhibitions, films, talks, performances and music events that all respond to the theme of ‘Searching’. 

The continual search for knowledge and understanding of the world around us is what underpins and fuels university life and so ‘Searching’ seemed a prescient way to launch into the new academic year. Whether the search is for home, for identity or new experiences, this season’s programme is sure to delight and stretch your imagination in many ways.
