Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
ArtistsLSO String Ensemble
Following two well-received releases, the LSO String Ensemble continues on LSO Live with three English masterpieces: Vaughan Williams's Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, a visionary fusion of folksong and sacred music; Britten's Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge, a challenging landmark of 20th-century string writing, here in a virtuosic performance; and Elgar's Introduction and Allegro, a work beloved of the LSO, having been composed for and premiered by the Orchestra.
An acclaimed soloist, performing at many of the worldís most prestigious venues, Roman Simovic has awarded prizes at numerous international competitions, placing him among the foremost violinists of his generation. He says of these pieces: "itís a big challenge for me to perform this wonderful English programme with an English orchestra. The LSO has a really special, unique, sound and to produce this standing up without a conductor, well itís quite a challenge! But my fellow players are all fantastic musicians with huge knowledge and I think people more and more are looking forward to our concerts, because itís something really special: real chamber music."
