The programme featrures inspiring, uplifting, and joyous music celebrating new beginnings, written by composers at the most pivotal moments in their lives. Prokofiev’s first major commission on emigration to America, the tantilizing Overture on Hebrew Themes, Schoenberg’s finding of his own personal new compositional style steeped in romanticism in his first Chamber Symphony and Copland’s Pulitzer Prize winning Ballet Suite, the emotive and gorgeously melodic Appalachian Spring symbolising “a more prosperous future, a future in which men and women would be united again”.
