The Lost Chord: October 9 - Vaughan, But Not Forgotten
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, for the 150th anniversary of his birth, by way of three rare recordings of RVW conducting his own music: 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.
