Concert Information

George Bernard Shaw reputedly described England and the US as ‘two countries divided by a common language’. John Wilson is our translator for two journeys into the great wide open: Copland’s Appalachian Spring paints a vivid portrait of rural Pennsylvania, while Vaughan Williams’s wartime Fifth Symphony sings of a troubled England. In between, a transatlantic classic: Andrew Haveron stars in the spirited Violin Concerto by Erich Korngold, who left Austria and became a pioneering composer in Golden Age Hollywood.
