From the TSO: In light of continued recommendations from the Australian Government Department of Health and Public Health Services Tasmania concerning the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra will continue its suspension of all public performances until July 11.
The TSO will continue to work with the Department of Health during the coming weeks to make a further decision about the remainder of the 2020 concert season and will make further announcements on future plans in due course.
We are committed to supporting and sustaining the Tasmanian community during this challenging time and we thank you for your loyalty, support and understanding. Please continue to stay safe and well, and we look forward to performing for you live onstage again soon.
‘He rises and begins to round,
He drops the silver chain of sound…’
- George Meredith, The Lark Ascending
Rising ever so gently and soaring to stratospheric heights as it twists, turns and takes flight, the solo violin in The Lark Ascending evokes an idyllic and untroubled world. Vaughan Williams’ consoling masterpiece has been a concert favourite for well-nigh a hundred years. Equally popular is Mozart’s Symphony No 41, his final symphony, which goes by the nickname ‘Jupiter’ on account of its exalted position within the symphonic orbit.
The concert opens with Mendelssohn’s moody sea picture The Hebrides and follows with Saint-Saëns’s Spanish-inspired Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso for solo violin and orchestra.
