We begin our season showcasing many of our excellent principal players. Elizabeth Jordan gives us her fine interpretation of Mozart’s gorgeous Clarinet Concerto on the basset clarinet, for which the piece was originally written. Vaughan Williams’ much-loved Lark Ascending finds Artistic Director Nicholas Ward evoking a nostalgic scene of the English countryside. Listening to Sibelius’ wonderfully atmospheric Rakastava, it is hard to imagine that he originally composed this for unaccompanied male chorus. Haydn’s Symphony no 6 nicknamed ‘Le Matin’, opens with a picture of the sun rising. It is the first of three symphonies that are characterised by unusual virtuoso writing across the orchestral ensemble, most notably the double bass.
