Andrew Manze Conductor Stephanie Gonley violin† SCO Strings Academy
A song of beauty from the summer sky, an idyllic evocation of the British countryside. There are many reasons why Vaughan Williams’s captivating The LarkAscending is one of the country’s most cherished pieces, and violinist and conductor Andrew Manze is an authority on the composer’s music.
Young players from the SCO String Academy join the Orchestra for the powerful energy of Vaughan Williams’s rugged Concerto grosso, while Manze closes the concert with one of the composer’s most visionary works: the radiant Fifth Symphony answered the brutality of the Second World War with music of transcendental calm.
