A Balancing Act – Ashley Wass Talks to Jeremy Siepmann

VAUGHAN WILLIAMS, R.: Piano Concerto / The Wasps / English Folk Song Suite / The Running Set (Wass, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Judd)

The popular overture from Vaughan Williams’s incidental music for Aristophanes’s The Wasps introduces a suite whose mischievously witty, noble and farcical movements underline the play’s satire of the Athenian legal system. A similar vivacity characterises his English Folksong Suite and The Running Set, where Vaughan Williams relishes setting tunes such as Barrack Hill, Irish Reel, The Blackthorn Stick and Cock o’ the North. Folksong-like melodies also feature in his magnificent Piano Concerto, in which the magisterial influence of Bach and Busoni may also be heard.
