Overview

Jack Liebeck & Friends

Nature Unwrapped

From the Haunted Forest

Schumann Waldszenen for solo piano, Op. 82
Rebecca Clarke Midsummer Moon for violin and piano
Dvorák From the Bohemian Forest for cello and piano, Op. 68
G. Lange (arr. Sonnenfeld) Edelweiss, Op. 31
Elgar Piano Quintet in A minor, Op. 84

Celebrated violinist Jack Liebeck is joined by a host of leading musicians for a night of nature-inspired Romantic works.

The centrepiece is Elgar’s epic piano quintet which, according to Lady Elgar, was inspired by strangely-shaped trees at Flexham Park. As local legend had it, they were the forms of sacrilegious Spanish monks forever encased by lightning in the trees.

This is prefaced by Schumann’s Waldszenen (Forest Scenes) for solo piano, Dvořák’s From the Bohemian Forest for cello and piano, Rebecca Clarke’s delightful Midsummer Moon which evokes a peaceful and magical moonlit landscape, and the famous melody Edelweiss which is sure to have the audience humming along.
