Chamber Orchestra of New York makes its AUPAC debut with an all Ralph Vaughan Williams program. Under the baton of its music director, Salvatore Di Vittorio, the orchestra’s program features two United States premieres of first-edition publications of Vaughan Williams’ early works by publisher Oxford University Press in collaboration with the Vaughan Williams Charitable Trust. The Solent will serve as an introduction to the Fantasia for Piano, showcasing German pianist Sina Kloke, and the evening will conclude with the masterwork The Lark Ascending, featuring British violinist Jennifer Pike. All of the music is filled with Vaughan Williams’ ever-present sensibilities for folk song and evocative pastoral landscapes.
