Harriet MacKenzie

Salisbury International Arts Festival Event

A glorious nature-inspired programme featuring Harriet Mackenzie (violin), Eamonn Dougan (conductor) and the London Chamber Orchestra. The iconic Lark Ascending celebrates the beauty of the English countryside; Deborah Pritchard’s critically acclaimed new concerto Edge, written for Harriet Mackenzie in response to Maggi Hambling’s powerful paintings, depicts the frailty of nature; Finzi’s Dies Natalis sets texts by the 17th century poet Thomas Traherne reflecting the joy and wonder of a newborn child’s innocent perspective; William Lloyd-Webber’s hommage to the moon is a beautiful four-part song to words written by WH Davies and the Festival celebrates the 125th year of Peter Warlock’s birth with his Capriol Suite written for his friend and mentor Frederick Delius.
