Tickets "at the door" - until sold out
  1. D'un soir triste - Lili Boulanger
  2. Concerto for violin and orchestra in A minor Op 82 - Aleksandr Konstantinovich Glazunov
  3. Symphony No 6 in E minor - Ralph Vaughan Williams

Superb and powerful music by Lili Boulanger - the French prodigy, who died so tragically young. Followed by the fiery and technically brilliant Russian violin concerto by Glazunov.

The concert concludes with one of the greatest symphonies of the 20th century - Vaughan Williams's Symphony No 6. Written during the Second World War it contains some of Vaughan Williams's most brutal music, plus some of his softest and strangest. A truly great and unforgettable piece of music!

There will be a short talk after the interval, 'Is it a symphony about war?', before the piece is performed.
