The Lost Chord: August 26 - Vaughan, But Not Forgotten

Aug 26, 2018

Ralph Vaughan Williams’ ashes are interred in Westminster Abbey, an honor reserved for England’s greatest luminaries; yet the composer is still sorely underestimated, especially by those outside the British Isles.  We’ll celebrate his legacy, on the 60th anniversary of his death, by way of three rare recordings of RVW conducting his own works – the overture to “The Wasps” (recorded in 1925), the Symphony No. 4 (1937), and the “Serenade to Music” (1951).  Connect with Vaughan Williams on the podium, this Sunday at 10 pm.
