Warlock’s Capriol Suite, a vivid reimaging of renaissance dance tunes, bursts with infectious rhythms and harmonies from a time gone by. Mozart’s fourth violin concerto, a work now cemented in the popular concerto repertoire, is one of the most technically demanding, holding the instrument constantly in the spotlight – played here by “Britain’s finest violinist” (The Independent), Tasmin Little.
Barber’s Adagio for Strings is a real contender for the saddest, most emotive and heart-breaking music written in the last century. The famous adagio – with its emotional intensity – has become the music people turn to in the wake of tragic events around the globe.
One of Haydn’s most highly-charged creations, the Trauer (mourning) Symphony takes on an emotional and dramatic character, and is one of the composer’s most brilliantly inventive works.
