200126 Sinfonia of Cambridge

Sinfonia of Cambridge

Bird Songs

Sunday 26th January

7:30 pm

Music which echoes, imitates and celebrates birdsong is the inspiration for the Sinfonia of Cambridge’s winter concert, with the exceptional young violinist Emma Lisney playing the solo part in Vaughan Williams’s ‘The Lark Ascending’.
The programme begins with Respighi’s ‘The Birds’, coloured by the sounds of the dove, the hen, the nightingale and the cuckoo. After Vaughan Williams’s enduringly popular evocation of the song of the skylark, chamber choirs from St John’s College School then join the orchestra, for a Catalan folk song arranged by their musical director Howard Williams.
The programme concludes with a suite of music from Tchaikovsky’s incomparable ballet ‘Swan Lake’.

Respighi: The Birds
Anon.arr. Howard Williams: The Song of the Birds
Vaughan Williams: The Lark Ascending
Tchaikovsky: Suite from ‘Swan Lake’
