The Full Works Concert - Tuesday 23 September, 8pm

It's the Autumn Equinox - so Jane Jones has some suitably seasonal music.

Autumn lake

On tonight’s Full Works Concert, Jane Jones marks the Autumnal Equinox with music inspired by this season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. We’ll hear from Grieg and Mendelssohn, as well as something from Paul McCartney’s classical repertoire, and a piece that Vaughan Williams originally composed for the Women's Institute.

His Folk Songs for the Four Seasons started life as a cantata for women's voices, bringing together two of the composer's personal loves: his championing of amateur music making and his life-long fascination for English folk-song.
