Ayr Concert Series - BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

Where: Ayr Town Hall
When: Friday 28 October 2016 at 7.30pm

In the darkest hours of World War II, the 70-year old Ralph Vaughan Williams offered a vision of peace. And from misty opening to visionary finish, the Fifth is the Vaughan Williams symphony par excellence: expansive, eloquent and rapturously beautiful. But it's got teeth, too, and if anyone can unlock its latent drama, it's NIcholas Carter. He's paired it with another haunted vision of a better world by Vaughan Williams's friend and mentor Ravel, and set them both against the soaring lyricism and dazzling sheen of Barber's Violin Concerto, performed here by Valeriy Sokolov.
