The NSO invites you to enjoy a musical visit to Idyllic Places. The two works by Elgar are short, yet romantically rich and expressive works; the perfect bookends to Diehnelt’s Caprio for oboe and strings. Maestra Diehnelt’s compositional style is best described as a “Nordic Palestrina” as her works possess a lyrical, vocal quality with an attention to beauty and the sense of an unfolding story. The Vaughan Williams Symphony will instantly evoke a idyllic feeling of pastoral landscapes while transporting us through a broad canvas of emotion.
