I Get Goosebumps Every Time…

November 29th, 2012 § 0 comments


I have always felt a great affinity for the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams, and his Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis ranks right up there with  my all-time favorite pieces. It evokes the timelessness of Stonehenge with the profoundly searching, lush quality of an exquisite English countryside viewed from the distance of memory. I get goose bumps every time I perform it. To be able to play it in the same season as the monumental  Sixth Symphony is to open a beautiful window into life’s ultimate questions. I am so looking forward to it!“- Anhared Stowe, HSO Principal Second Violin
