Songs encapsulate some of our deepest emotions, from the despair of John Dowland consoled by Paul Stanhope’s new work, Vaughan Williams’s meditations on life and mortality, through to pure joy in works by Beethoven and Ravel.
Smetana’s Piano Trio is one last lullaby for a lost child, laced with memories of dancing and joy.
The ease of a summer holiday is reflected Dvořák’s Piano Quartet, while Barber’s wind quintet suggests a tour through different landscapes on a sunny day.
Some music delights in pattern for its own sake.
Finish the year in the company of the fairy tale characters of Ravel’s Mother Goose, the distinctive Australia sound of Ross Edwards, some sparkling Mozart, and the deftly-drawn birds and animals of Saint-Saëns’s ‘Grand Zoological Fantasy’.
