The Lark Ascending: Hobart
Eivind Aadland conductor
Emma McGrath violin
MENDELSSOHN The Hebrides
SAINT-SAËNS Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS The Lark Ascending
MOZART Symphony No 41, Jupiter
‘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 Hobart concert opens with Grieg’s folk-inspired Norwegian Dances, while the Launceston concert offers Mendelssohn’s moody sea picture The Hebrides and the irrepressible energy of Saint-Saëns’s Spanish-inspired Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso for solo violin and orchestra.
