Symphonies 4 & 6 - Ralph Vaughan Williams - EMX 41 2072 1

£5.99

Product description

Ralph Vaughan Williams' fourth symphony is quite untypical of the composer's general work, which is commonly more 'pastoral' in its feel, than this symphony, which leans a bit more toward the 'conventional' work of most symphonies.

Some later said it prophesised the rise of fascism, but when debuted in 1935, this was not the general view of the work, and Vaughan Williams himself always maintained that, it was pure music.

Side One : Vaughan Williams' Symphony No.4 in F minor :-
1) I Allegro 2) II Andante moderato 3) i) III Scherzo ii) IV Finale con Epilogo iii) V Fugato (Allegro molto)

The sixth symphony's dissonance and, indeed, level of sonic violence, made for quite a shock, when debuted in 1948. It is undoubtedly Ralph Vaughan Williams' most warlike symphony, with the first three movements being so complex and wild, while the final movement is desolate and haunting.

Side Two : Vaughan Williams' Symphony No.6 in E minor :-
1) Allegro 2) Moderato 3) Scherzo (Allegro vivace) 4) Epilogue (Moderato)

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX-/EX.
