Introduced and played by ENSEMBLE 360

ELGAR Chanson de nuit for cello and piano
BRITTEN Lachrymae: Reflections on a Song of John Dowland Op.48 for viola and piano
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS The Lark Ascending, original version for violin and piano

In the first of five concerts featuring insight and discussion from members of Ensemble 360, the musicians guide you through some of the great classics of English string music. Benjamin Britten, in common with Vaughan Williams, drew inspiration from the first great age of English music, the Elizabethan era – his Lachrymae for viola and piano quotes Dowland’s exquisite songs If my complaints and Flow my tears. The concert also features Vaughan Williams’ sublime The Lark Ascending in its original version from 1914.

Presented by Music in the Round, as part of Sheffield Chamber Music Festival 2018
