V.William Lark Ascending Violin

Composed for Violin and Piano in 1914, and reworked for Violin and Orchestra in 1920, The Lark Ascending is on of Vaughan Williams's most enduringly popular works. A serene romance, the work takes its title from a poem by George Meredith. The Violin's magical evocation of the lark's 'chirrup, whistle, slur and shake', as it soas above delicate orchestral textures, demonstrates the composer's mastery of the pastoral idiom. This new edition of the version for Violin and Piano includes an introduction by Michael Kennedy and is produced with the support of RVW Ltd.
