Visions of England

Part of Classical Season 2019/20

Vaughan Williams’ music for a ballet based on Blake and Thomas Adès contemporary classic sit side by side in this concert by the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

Think of Vaughan Williams and you probably think of the English countryside. Well, think again, because this is Job: a ballet score so extreme that it even features a full-scale dance sequence for the Devil himself.

It’s as astonishing as it sounds – especially when conducted by Andrew Manze, a conductor whose ‘unrivalled
knowledge, instinct and understanding’ (The Independent) of Vaughan Williams’ vision has drawn widespread acclaim.

Two exquisite Renaissance miniatures provide the frame, while Manze and violinist Anthony Marwood unlock the puzzles of Thomas Adès’ fascinating violin concerto Concentric Paths: a contemporary classic overflowing with
ingenuity and enchantment.
