Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending
Ravel Tzigane for Violin and Orchestra
Mozart Symphony No 40
Joshua Weilerstein conductor
Tasmin Little violin
Enjoy this concert in the comfort of your home, as we bring the Orchestra to your living room with an innovative online experience.
Violinist Tasmin Little, in her farewell performances in Liverpool, brings fire and passion to Ravel – inspired by a gypsy violinist and his Basque heritage. And Vaughan Williams....well, enchanted by George Meredith’s poem about the skylark’s song, he gives us a vision of an idyllic English countryside. The concert ends with Mozart’s Symphony No 40, one of the composer’s most popular works.
This concert has been extended and will be available until midnight on Sunday 28 February 2021.

We’ve been thrilled with the positive feedback on these concerts:
The 4* Times review praised "a performance of dancing colours, crisp beauty and punch… Petrenko’s forces played with heart, soul and all the other necessaries in a performance strong enough to overwhelm even a home listener alone with a laptop."
The Guardian remarked on the concert’s “maximum impact for a bold start to virtual season”
“Brilliant concert. Excellent programme. Great to have Stephen Johnson involved. Top class performance. More please ! Bravo !
“The sound quality was excellent and the programme was excellent.”
“This was so beautiful it made me cry”
