Violin Concerto No 1

Harmonielehre

Originally planned for April 2020, this programme showcases one of the seminal works from a current living composer, John Adams' Harmonielehre. Adams stated that the piece was inspired by a dream in which he saw an oil tanker on the surface of the water abruptly turn upright and take off like a Saturn V rocket!

The programme also features Holst's mythical Egdon Heath and Shostakovich's thrilling 1st Violin Concerto with local legend David Greed.
