Lunchtime Concert - Vital Blossoms

Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra

Luke Dollman  conductor
Tahlia Williams  violin

Beethoven  Coriolan Overture, Op. 62
Lili Boulanger  D’un matin de printemps

Mendelssohn  Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64

When a Russian princess fell for her Paris Conservatoire professor, the fortuitous result was the Boulanger sisters. Child-prodigy Lily tragically died at 24 and was already seriously ill when she composed “On a Spring Morning”, which is highly impressionist in character. Mendelssohn’s blazing emblem of Romantic virtuosity, bursting with joie de vivre, is a huge audience favourite and guaranteed to thrill.
