The complex beauty of VSO Composer-in-Residence Jocelyn Morlock's Earthfall kicks off a concert that also features exceptional French violinist Alexandra Soumm's take on French composer Edouard Lalo's Symphonie espagnole. Lalo's unique work, part symphony, mostly concerto, took Paris by storm with its Iberian flavours, sensual rhythms, and hints of Flamenco and Tango.
Robert Schumann was one of the most significant artists of his time, but not known for the quality of his orchestrations. However, his Symphony No. 4, heavily re-worked after initial drafts, became one of his greatest triumphs.
