BBC Philharmonic | 19 March

‘The greatest symphony since Beethoven,’ reckoned William Walton of Vaughan Williams’ Fourth – fierce, earthy and compelling music, brought to vivid life tonight by Sir Andrew Davis as we continue our joint celebration with the Hallé of 150 years since the composer’s birth. A soaring setting of Walt Whitman’s journey into the eternal beyond presents a very different side to Vaughan Williams – as does the dramatic yet balletic sweep of Job: A Masque for Dancing, a masterful interpretation of the battle between God and Satan as viewed through the prism of the servant who never quite lost his faith.

Vaughan Williams Toward the Unknown Region Vaughan Williams Symphony No. 4 in F minor Vaughan Williams Job: A Masque for Dancing Hallé Choir Sir Andrew Davis conductor This concert is part of Toward the Unknown Region – RVW150. To mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Ralph Vaughan Williams, the BBC Philharmonic and the Hallé are joining forces to offer a unique Mancunian tribute - presenting a complete cycle of composer's symphonies.
