The Lark Ascending
Our countryside isn’t all babbling brooks and skylarks: it’s rife with power struggles, protest movements, and poetic inspirations. From Vaughan Williams’ romantic orchestral The Lark Ascending to 60s counterculture and the rave scene of the 80s, tonight’s entertainment travels across the decades. Artist and author Richard King is your host for a lyrical, literary journey through our landscapes with music inspired by classic poetry from the 90 years of Faber & Faber. Join musicians Marcus Barcham-Stevens and Christina Lawrie from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, Scottish folk great Karine Polwart and a few surprise guests for a joyful night.
