Honneger, Vaughan Williams, Bartok

Live from Earth Music Bristol at St George's

Presented by Petroc Trelawny

Tonight's concert features the BBC Concert Orchestra with their Conductor Laureate, Barry Wordsworth, in a programme of music about the natural world.

Violinist Cynthia Fleming plays Vaughan Williams's perennial favourite Lark Ascending, and Roderick Elms is the piano soloist in Robin Milford's evocative Fishing by Moonlight. We have a French view of the world's creation from Darius Milhaud and the concert ends with some of Bartok's so-called 'Night Music' in his Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste, an evocation of the natural world at night.

Honneger: Pastorale d'ete.
Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending.
Bartok: Music for Strings, Percussion and Celeste.

Cynthia Fleming (violin),
BBC Concert Orchestra,
Barry Wordsworth (conductor).
