KWS Concertmaster Bénédicte Lauzière takes centre stage for the gorgeously melodic and lyrical but also virtuosic Barber Violin Concerto. Thomas Adès, widely hailed as one of the most significant and provocative of contemporary composers, has taken harpsichord finales by the Baroque master Couperin and orchestrated them for the opening piece on the program. The Orchestra is featured in Schubert’s majestic Symphony No. 9 in C major, rightly known as The Great.
