MOZART Violin Sonata in G K.301
BERLIOZ Harold en Italie excerpts (transcribed by LISZT for viola and piano)
BARTÓK Duos for violin and viola
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS The Lark Ascending (original version for violin and piano)
MOZART Duo for violin and viola in B flat K.424
Ensemble 360 launch this concert with a performance of Mozart’s youthful and zestful Violin Sonata in G. Berlioz’s ‘Harold in Italy’ was inspired by Lord Byron’s poem Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage; such was Liszt’s passionate admiration for the work that, despite misgivings, Berlioz allowed him to prepare this transcription. Bartók and Vaughan Williams are both renowned for their championing of national folk music idioms, but here it is the quintessential elegiac ‘Englishness’ that is to the fore in the singularly beautiful The Lark Ascending.
