Vaughan Williams The Lark Ascending
Suckling The White Road (after Edmund de Waal)
Ravel Daphnis et Chloé: Suite No1
Ravel Daphnis et Chloé: Suite No2

‘He rises and begins to round/ He drops the silver chain of sound…’ When The Lark Ascending takes to the air, time itself seems to stand still: no wonder it regularly tops the Classic FM Hall of Fame. Our lark tonight is the RSNO’s own Principal Flute Katherine Bryan – who’ll also be playing music composed especially for her by rising Scottish star Martin Suckling. How to top that? Peter Oundjian shares Ravel’s sumptuous vision of ancient Greece: shepherd girls, pirates and sounds that’ll ravish your ears.
