Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra
Federation Concert Hall
Rising ever so gently and soaring to stratospheric heights as it twists, turns and takes flight, the solo violin in The Lark Ascending evokes an idyllic and untroubled world. Vaughan Williams’ consoling masterpiece has been a concert favourite for well-nigh a hundred years. Equally popular is Mozart’s Symphony No 41, his final symphony, which goes by the nickname ‘Jupiter’ on account of its exalted position within the symphonic orbit.
