Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending
Vaughan Williams Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
Shostakovich Chamber Symphony op 110a

RCM string players perform side-by-side with talented young musicians from the RCM Junior Department in celebration of Vaughan Williams' 150th anniversary year.

Continuing this season's nature theme, Head of Strings, Mark Messenger, directs The Lark Ascending for solo violin and chamber orchestra, as well as the composer’s timeless Fantasia, featuring two string orchestras which create an intricately woven musical texture. The second half of the programme is given over to Shostakovich's Chamber Symphony, dedicated to 'the victims of fascism and war'.
