Toward the Unknown Region
Friday, November 3, 2023
Admired for his authentic and original voice, the British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams created soundscapes which seem to emerge right from the mists of the English countryside. Tonight we enjoy the stunningly beautiful Tallis Fantasia for strings as well as his powerful but little-heard Toward the Unknown Region, for chorus and orchestra – alongside music from Hungarian composer Miklós Rózsa, and the premiere of a new work for children’s voices and orchestra by Music Director & Conductor Gregory Vajda.
