THE LARK ASCENDING

‘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.
