Vaughan Williams’ lush, expansive work for string orchestra opens this summer festival. This unusually orchestrated work is scored for a large string orchestra, smaller string ensemble and a solo quartet, showing off the string orchestra in all its glory and evoking an unmistakably British sound.
In contrast to the sweet and lyrical melodies of Mozart’s Third Violin Concerto, Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony is grand and majestic, with the Orchestra out in full force.
