British melancholia and temperamental streams of emotion

Wide vistas of sound that are as capricious as the British weather. Music that is drenched in its every fibre in melancholy, only to burst out in fiery streams of emotion the next moment. Ralph Vaughan Williams wrote British music through and through. 

Our guest conductor Andrew Litton takes a deep dive into the rich repertoire of Ralph Vaughan Williams. Litton is an expert in British music from the 20th century, as appears from his successful renditions of Walton and Vaughan Williams. Together with the inseparable piano brothers Jussen, Litton takes a stand for the Concerto for Two Pianos. With his Second Symphony Vaughan Williams composed a loving ode to the hurly-burly of London city life. 

To keep waiting times down to an absolute minimum, this concert will make use of the 'wallet-less intermission' concept. Visitors are asked to pay for their intermission drink in advance when ordering their tickets: the perfect solution for enjoying your company and your drink as long as possible!
