Ralph Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending
George Frideric Handel Water Music, Suite No. 1
The Chamber Orchestra embarks on a journey up the River Thames with Handel’s Water Music. Written for King George I to be performed on a royal barge in the river, Water Music is actually a collection of orchestral suites that have become some of Handel's most recognizable and beloved compositions. Vaughan Williams’ sublime pastoral romance The Lark Ascending is certainly one of the composer's most enduring and popular masterpieces, and there is perhaps no better musical depiction of England's gentle rolling green hills and wildlife than this clear audience favorite.
