Peerless violist and the English Chamber Orchestra Charitable Trust’s new Artistic Director Lawrence Power opens the season with Biber’s La Battalia, an extraordinary depiction of war, redefining and inventing instrumental techniques that were truly groundbreaking. Lawrence is the soloist in Hartmann’s Concerto funèbre for violin and strings, composed during the outbreak of World War II, a heart-wrenching lament for a lost world. Written after the First World War, Kodály’s Serenade for two violins and viola is one of his most personal works, infused with the Hungarian folk music he’d collected with Bartók. After war, a hard-won peace, with Mozart’s seminal dialogue between equals, the Sinfonia concertante, with violinist Anthony Marwood.
