Vaughan Williams Symphony No 2 in G major ‘A London Symphony’
Jonathan Tilbrook conductor
Trinity Laban orchestral students play alongside members of the teaching staff in this performance of Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No 2 (London), part of Blackheath Halls’ week of commemorative World War I events.
Although composed pre-war, Symphony No 2 was dedicated to the composer George Butterworth who was killed on the Somme during World War I, and it was Butterworth who first encouraged Vaughan Williams to write the piece.
