Grieg Holberg Suite Op.40
Showcasing the string section of the Ensemble, this programme features some of the repertoire’s best-loved pieces including Grieg’s zesty Holberg Suite and Vaughan Williams’ richly-scored variations on the folk song Dives and Lazarus. From the other side of the Atlantic, Copland’s Clarinet Concerto opens with a slow and expressive movement, full of longing, before a virtuosic cadenza leads into the lively, jazz-inspired second movement. The Bristol Ensemble is delighted to welcome back the clarinettist Oliver Pashley as soloist.
