Sibelius’ evocative Karelia Suite opens this concert. Filled with upbeat, catchy melodies as well as moments of quiet contemplation, this stunning work sets a wonderful tone for the evening.
Next, the esteemed Jennifer Pike performs Mozart’s exquisite and intimate Third Violin Concerto followed by Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, with its lyrical violin line soaring to the heavens. Voted the nation’s favourite piece by Classic FM listeners a staggering eight times, this portrait of a bird taking flight is a firm favourite of audiences everywhere. Elgar’s ever popular and quintessentially English ‘Enigma’ Variations provides a fantastic finish to this performance. A landmark piece not just for Elgar, but for British music.
