CL@SIX: A Lark Ascending

Tickets: £12 adults, £10 seniors, £5 child/student/unemployed
  • Mendelssohn
  • Vaughan Williams
  • Schubert

Nothing captures the mystical, melancholy yearning aspect of Vaughan Williams more intensely than his  transcendental masterpiece, The Lark Ascending. The generous acoustic of St Cuthbert’s will allow it to soar sensationally. Janiczek frames it with young men's music: both Mendelssohn and Schubert were around 20 years old when they wrote their respective pieces. The Mendelssohn's a particularly delightful rarity – the overture from an operetta he wrote to celebrate his parents’ silver wedding.
