It’s deepest winter in Birmingham, but at Symphony Hall, it’s spring! Benjamin Britten took a garland of poems, a children’s choir and a fistful of folksongs, and threw together his magical Spring Symphony, here paired with two bracing British seascapes to enter Britten’s 100th birthday year on the crest of a wave.
