Saffron Hall: Mozart, Vaughan Williams, Brahms
The inaugural concert in Saffron Hall's 2014-15 Season
Mozart Symphony No.32
Vaughan Williams On Wenlock Edge
Brahms Symphony No.4
Vladimir Jurowski conductor
Ian Bostridge tenor
The London Philharmonic Orchestra and their Principal conductor Vladimir Jurowski bring
their customary discipline and fire to Saffron Hall. The concert opens with
Mozart's succinct and spirited Symphony No. 32, a piece which marked a growing
maturity in the composer's orchestral writing. Brahms's luminous and spiritual Fourth Symphony is widely regarded as his supreme achievement in orchestral music, and the
summation of his quest to wed rigorous discipline and passionate emotion.
Tenor Ian Bostridge, universally acclaimed for his subtle intensity in English
repertoire, joins the Orchestra to perform Vaughan Williams' haunting and elegiac 1924 song-cycle On Wenlock Edge.
This concert marks Saffron Hall's first performance by a symphony orchestra, and the London Philharmonic Orchestra's first outing at this exciting new venue.
