Pinchas Zukerman returns to The Lark Ascending for the first time on record in over forty years, in a magical performance with the orchestra of which he is Principal Guest Conductor: the Royal Philharmonic, founded 70 years ago by Sir Thomas Beecham.

Zukerman plays and conducts a definitive collection of the best in English music: Vaughan Williamsís Tallis Fantasia and Elgarís Introduction & Allegro and Serenade for Strings frame shorter works such as Salut díamour, Chanson de Matin and Chanson de Nuit.

This disc also includes the world premiere recording of In Moonlight: an arrangement for solo viola, strings and harp of Elgarís famous Canto Popolare.

It was in the London of the late 1960s that Zukermanís love affair with English music began. Befriended by Jacqueline du Prť and Sir John Barbirolli, he discovered a natural affinity with the music of Elgar and its world of nobilmente. This album, made in Londonís Cadogan Hall, celebrates Zukermanís lifelong love of this sublimely moving music.
