Product description

Product Description

Vaughan Williamss London Symphony (the composers favourite of the nine) makes a rare appearance in its 1920 first publication. Three lesser-known works complete a highly desirable programme, while Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Symphony Orchestra understand how this music should be played like few others. This is mandatory listening.

Review

The BBC Symphony Orchestra are on magnificent form, and Martyn Brabbins's big-hearted direction digs deep and scales the heights. Wind solos in the Lento are exquisite, and there's a seismic tamtam thwack at the climax of the finale. Unmissable, and deeply moving. --The Arts Desk, January'18
