Sunday 18 September 3.00 pm
marking the 150th Anniversary of Vaughan Williams's birth.
Shiry Rashkovsky (viola)
Viv McLean (piano)
Jessica Duchen (narrator)
Ralph Vaughan Williams was the great-nephew of Charles Darwin. The violist Lionel Tertis, for whom he wrote some of his finest music, was the son of an impoverished East End synagogue cantor. Through these two artists' contrasting backgrounds and transcendental artistry, this special programme of words and music tells the story of their spirited battles against prejudice of all types – an impassioned plea for unity and acceptance. Award-winning violist Shiry Rashkovsky, acclaimed pianist Viv McLean and music critic and author Jessica Duchen join forces in an imaginative, richly varied programme devised for the 150th anniversary of Vaughan Williams's birth.
The programme includes:
Gustav Holst: Lyric Movement
Ralph Vaughan Williams: Suite for Viola and Piano
Rebecca Clarke: Passacaglia on an Old English Tune
Frederick Delius arr. Tertis: Serenade from Hassan
Ernest Bloch: Rhapsody from Suite Hebraique
Erich Wolfgang Korngold: Hornpipe from Much Ado About Nothing
