Neilsen – Helios Overture
Vaughan Williams – Symphony No. 5
Conductor: Jean-Claude Picard
At the heart of the firestorm of World War II, Ralph Vaughan Williams looked around him and saw a vision of peace. Serene, spiritual and heartbreakingly beautiful, Vaughan Williams’ Fifth is quite simply one of the finest symphonies ever composed in Britain.
