Everything that is beautiful in life, as far as Liza Ferschtman is concerned, starts with imagination, that which arises in your mind's eye and starts to lead a life through your own fantasy. A word, a thought can be the starting point for an entire festival program in a vivid imagination. This concert is an ode to the musical fantasy form. The focus is on the ten songs of Vaughan Williams set to poems by William Blake, a fond memory of one of the first festivals that Liza programmed.
