DateTuesday 24th September 2019
DescriptionBritten Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending Shostakovich Music from Suite for Variety Stage Orchestra Film Suite: Hamlet, Op. 116a Jennifer Pike violin Jan Latham-Koenig Talented young musicians from the UK and Russia come together in this orchestra inspired by the deep friendship between the two composers for whom it is named. The Four Sea Interludes, titled Dawn, Sunday Morning, Moonlight and Storm are wonderful impressions of the Suffolk coast Britten loved, while The Lark Ascending is an evocation of the English countryside. The Jazz Suites (more Kurt Weill than New Orleans) represent the lighter side of Shostakovich's music, while his score for the magnificent 1964 film version of Hamlet, including spoken text from the play, is stunningly effective and atmospheric.
