Vaughan Williams' Fifth Symphony
Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

Vaughan Williams' Fifth Symphony

Elgar Overture, Froissart (14')
Szymanowski Violin Concerto No.2 (20')
- INTERVAL - (20')
Vaughan Williams The Running Set (06')
Vaughan Williams Symphony No.5 (39')

Andrew Manze conductor
Sebastian Bohren violin

Post-concert Question Time - starts 15 minutes after the concert ends (in the Music Room) with Principal Guest Conductor Andrew Manze.

“When chivalry lifted up her lance on high…”. With a stirring flourish, the young Elgar summons up a whole vanished world of pageantry and adventure. It’s a very different England from the serenity of Vaughan Williams’ glorious Fifth Symphony and folk-inspired Running Set. Our Principal Guest Conductor, Andrew Manze, is an expert at making music sing and glow, so expect real magic when he joins violinist Sebastian Bohren in Szymanowski’s sensuous concerto.
