Aspects of England, Our vision of England has many faces and this music seeks to express them. In this programme we play quintessentially English music by three composers, each from a different generation: Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Malcolm Arnold

In Elgar’s song cycle Sea Pictures, he sets words by five different poets. The music basks in the late-romantic glow of the Edwardian Era and expresses his deep feelings about the Sea and our relationship to it.
His younger colleague, Ralph Vaughan Williams, like many contemporaries such as Bartok and Villa-Lobos, was determined to use the tunes and harmonies of folk song as a basis for a new musical language. After the terrifying violence of his fourth symphony, his fifth comes like a healing balm, more reminiscent of the Fantasy on a Theme of Thomas Tallis. Full of peace and quietude, it contains some of his most radiantly beautiful music.
Post War England is represented by Malcolm Arnold, a composer often better known for his lighter music. The two sets of English Dances contain a wide and richly diverse variety of styles from the hauntingly melancholy to the hilarious and will bring the concert to a riotous close.
Majestic, brooding, cheeky and achingly beautiful…
