VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis

SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Concerto No.1 for Piano, Trumpet and Strings

DELIUS The Walk to the Paradise Garden

SIBELIUS Symphony No.5

This delectable programme of spine-tingling works opens with the Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis by Vaughan Williams. The majesty of the English Renaissance meets the pre-war innocence of early twentieth-century England, as a theme by Thomas Tallis resonates through Vaughan Williamsí rich string textures. In the fascinating Piano Concerto No.1 for Piano, Trumpet and Strings by Shostakovich, the piano dominates, but both soloists shine with quickfire exchanges and rhythmic verve. The Walk to the Paradise Garden, from the opera A Village Romeo and Juliet by Delius, is a gloriously seductive work, its sumptuous orchestration dripping with nostalgia. As if this wasnít enough, the epic Fifth Symphony by Sibelius is one of his masterpieces, building to a climactic finale with its unforgettable horn theme.
