La Jolla Symphony & Chorus
We close our season with a reflection on the composer/soldiers of World War I, from Maurice Ravel to Ralph Vaughan-Williams to George Butterworth, whose life was tragically cut short in the war. Music from the same time by Charles Ives, and a favorite of Benjamin Britten, the Adagio for Strings rounds out a program that is both steeped in memory and full of messages for our own time.
MAURICE RAVEL La Valse
CHARLES IVES From Hanover Square North
