An inspiring programme of the finest of English music, featuring two of the most prominent composers of the past century. The first half of the concert belongs to Vaughan Williams, with his sparkling Overture ‘The Wasps’, the noble setting of ‘Toward the unknown region’ and one of the most popular of all classical works, ‘The lark ascending’, with recent BBC Young Musician of the Year string winner Callum Smart as violin soloist. Tippett’s ‘A child of our time’ is a powerful and moving memorial to the evils of human persecution, inspired by the events that led to the Holocaust.
