Earlier that afternoon, in the Town Hall, Thomas Zehetmair had conducted the Northern Sinfonia in beautifully played tributes to Ligeti. Then, joined by the soprano Patricia Rozario and violist Ruth Kilius, they gave the first performance of Farness, John Casken’s somewhat over-written, over-heated setting of three slight poems by Carol Ann Duffy.
