About

This collection brings together the complete symphonies and orchestral works of Ralph Vaughan Williams, performed by celebrated conductor Bernard Haitink and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.

The set demonstrates the breadth of the composer’s musical, historical and cultural influences – in works such as Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis and Sinfonia antartica – and contains some of the most memorable moments in music, such as the thrilling opening fanfare of A Sea Symphony, the contemplative mourning of the Pastoral and the beautiful passages for solo violin in The Lark Ascending.
