The Alliance Française de Glasgow is delighted to begin a new partnership with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and announce that they will perform Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending on Saturday 4th February, 7.30pm.
Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending / Martin Suckling: Flute Concerto Interval / Ravel: Daphnis et Chloé: Suite No1 & No2
Peter Oundjian conducts, with Principal Flute Katherine Bryan as soloist.
‘He rises and begins to round/ He drops the silver chain of sound…’ When The Lark Ascending takes to the air, time itself seems to stand still: no wonder it regularly tops the Classic FM Hall of Fame. Our lark tonight is the RSNO’s own Principal Flute Katherine Bryan – who’ll also be playing music composed especially for her by rising Scottish star Martin Suckling. How to top that? Peter Oundjian shares Ravel’s sumptuous vision of ancient Greece: shepherd girls, pirates and sounds that’ll ravish your ears.
Venue: Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, 2 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, G2 3NY
Date & time: Saturday 4th February at 7.30pm
Fees: £36, £28, £22, £16.50, £12.50
