About This Performance

The Musicians from Marlboro touring program offers “exactly the type of concert that the classical scene needs more of” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). The second of three programs this year from classical music’s “life-giving spring” (New York Times) spotlights Nicholas Phan—“one of the most eloquently communicative tenors on the scene today” (Baltimore Sun) —in a performance of Vaughan Williams’ On Wenlock Edge. Using poetry from A.E. Housman’s quintessentially English collection A Shropshire Lad, Vaughan Williams’ cycle is simultaneously sophisticated and down-to-earth, ingenious in its instrumental effects and straightforward in setting the texts.
