Under English Skies – 11 March 2023

Saturday 11 March 2023, 7.30pm
Trinity-Henleaze URC, Waterford Road, Henleaze, Bristol BS9 4BT

Doors open 6.15pm, pre-concert talk 6.45pm to 7.15pm

Elgar Introduction and Allegro
Holst St Paul’s Suite
Vaughan Williams Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus
Romance for String Orchestra Op.11       

Showcasing the string section of the Ensemble, this programme features some of the string-only repertoire’s best-loved and engaging music. Vaughan Williams’ variations on the folk song Dives and Lazarus are richly scored, revelling in the uniquely English sound of his music, similar in expansiveness to Elgar’s rapturous Introduction and Allegro.  Finzi’s Romance is also unmistakably English but with a poignant and elegiac quality, whilst Holst’s St Paul’s Suite draws on traditional ballads and dance for its inspiration.
