Zsolt-Tihamér Visontay violin/director

Oliver Wass harp

ALWYN Lyra Angelica, Concerto for

harp and strings

HAYDN Symphony No. 64

SCHUBERT Symphony No. 3

 

The harp takes centre stage in English composer William Alwyn’s magical concerto, Lyra Angelica (Angels’ Songs), performed by award-winning harpist Oliver Wass. At the heart of the concert there is the opportunity to hear Haydn’s Symphony No. 64: between the shifting moods of the exhilarating opening movement and the mercurial finale comes an expansive Largo exuding a sense of timelessness, and a stately Minuet and Trio. Haydn’s influence can then be heard in Schubert’s Symphony No. 3, written when he was just 18 and brimming with youthful vitality and invention.
