We invited London based classical violinist and friend of Turnbull, Olivia Holland, to play a series of her favourite pieces for your enjoyment.


Schubert's, Neun Ländler in D major


Méditation, from Thaïs


Clair de Lune, Debussy


 


Schubert's Neun Ländler in D major


One of nine beautiful country dances written in 1816, a time when dancing was an integral part of Austrian culture. Traditionally, 'Ländler' is a partner dance, featuring hoping, stomping and even yodelling. However, as dance halls became increasingly popular the 'Ländler' become quicker and more elegant, much like the piece Olivia performs for us.


 


 



 


Méditation, from Thaïs


An opera written by the French composer Jules Massenet. Thaïs is set in Egypt under the rule of the Roman Empire, where Athanaël, a Cenobite monk, attempts to convert Thaïs an Alexandrian courtesan to Christianity. In between the scenes of Act II, where Athanaël is trying to persuade Thaïs to find salvation through God, Méditation is played by solo violin. 


 


 



 


Clair de Lune, Debussy


One of Debussy's most famous works, Clair de Lune is the third movement of his suite, Bergamasque, which was originally written for the piano. The name, Clair de Lune, literally translates as 'moonlight' and the music conjures up a peaceful and reflective mood.
