ERIC COATES London Suite
HOLST Double Concerto for Two Violins
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Symphony No. 2
Walthamstow Assembly Hall
Conductor Mark Shanahan
Violin John Crawford
Violin Liz Partridge
The focus is on English music, and indeed a London theme, for our spring concert. Forest Philharmonic’s long-standing violin section leaders take centre stage as soloists for a rare performance of Holst’s Double Concerto for Two Violins. The concerto is bookended by evocations of London from different times in the last century, with Big Ben and the hustle and bustle of life in the city reflected in the music.
