Event description
Copland Appalachian SpringVaughan Williams The Lark AscendingCopland Hoedown from RodeoBarber Knoxville: Summer of 1915
Pre-concert talk with David Bednall at 6.45pm
That most English of masterpieces, The Lark Ascending, was written against the backdrop of war and depicts freedom and hope so eloquently that it has become the nation's favourite instrumental work. The soaring violin solo rises higher and higher, depicting the bird circling above English meadows.
From across the Atlantic, Copland's distinctively American soundscape is heard in Appalachian Spring and Hoedown, lively and evocative works. Barber's work for solo soprano paints an idyllic, nostalgic picture of Knoxville, Tennessee in the early twentieth century, evoking warm summer evenings through childhood memories.
