Vaughan Williams Discovery Afternoon

30th October 2022

14:00 - View all performance times

Turner Sims Concert Hall , Southampton University University Road

David Owen Norris presenter, piano
plus guest speakers to be announced

Celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of one of England’s greatest composers, Ralph Vaughan Williams. Join David Owen Norris for a special discovery afternoon of music, insights and discussion.

You will be the first to hear new arrangements for piano chamber choir and ensemble of four movements from Vaughan Williams’s ballet Job. The one-act ballet is considered one of the composer’s mightiest achievements but is rarely performed.

The Discovery Afternoon includes a rare showing of the film The Passions of Vaughan Williams (winner of the FIPA Prix d’Argent in 2009). The film’s director, John Bridcut, joins the panel for the round table discussion. John has also made films on Parry, Elgar & Delius, and his recent film Janet Baker in her own words became an instant classic.

You will also have the chance to hear from Vaughan Williams experts on the composer’s life, music and legacy.
