Symphony No. 5 in D major

The music

Dedicated to this evenings great soloist,Håkan is the third concerto for trumpet by English composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, written in 2014. The orchestra is composed of rare instruments including various gongs, temple bells, and harp strings. Between two exotic movements, the Arietta is a beautiful nocturn dominated by the nostalgic sounds of a trumpet soaring above the chords of the strings and a light percussion.

Without a doubt, Daniel Harding is one of the best ambassadors of Ralph Vaughan-Williams works, which are relatively unknown to French-speaking audiences. Composed in the midst of the war between 1938 and 1943, and dedicated to Jean Sibelius, the Symphony No. 5 is a great serene and luminous song of hope, bringing a little consolation after such tragic years.
