Peasmarsh Chamber Music Festival: Orchestral Concert – Fall and Rise

Anthony Marwood, Richard Lester (soloists), Geoffrey Paterson (conductor), Aurora Orchestra

  • RAVEL Tombeau de Couperin
  • VAUGHAN WILLIAMS The Lark Ascending
  • ELGAR Concerto for ‘cello in E minor, Op. 85

Tonight’s concert celebrates three masterpieces of the 20th Century, each composed (or orchestrated) 100 years ago as Europe emerged from the Great War. Ravel’s tribute to François Couperin is a highly personal work, commemorating friends lost during the conflict. Originally composed for violin and piano, and rescored for violin and orchestra in 1920, The Lark Ascending is now a cherished part of the classical canon. His last major work, it was not until the 1960s that Elgar’s moving Cello Concerto gained its rightful place as a pillar of cello repertoire.

Fiery music making… full of zest and joy – Fiona Maddocks, The Observer on Aurora.
