L’Etage Magazine interview with Salvatore Di Vittorio, Music Director of the Chamber Orchestra of New York

VAUGHAN WILLIAMS, R.: Lark Ascending (The) / The Solent / 6 Short Pieces / Fantasia (Pike, Kloke, Chamber Orchestra of New York, Di Vittorio)

Vaughan Williams withdrew or destroyed many works from his earliest period, but he considered The Solent, with its haunting opening and luminous polyphonic textures, as among his ‘most important works’. The Fantasia is his earliest known piece for solo instrument with orchestra and contains some of his most bravura writing, contrasting with the graceful geniality of the Suite. Depicting a sublimely pastoral scene and now one of the best loved pieces ever written, Vaughan Williams called The Lark Ascending a ‘romance’, a term reserved for his most profoundly lyrical works.
