Further Information: How many times while growing up did Ralph Vaughan Williams gaze at the romantic view of the city of London seen from the summit of Leith Hill? In this lavishly illustrated talk, Andrew Green imagines how the distant vision became a reality—the focus of Vaughan Williams’s early years as a composer. But does his 1914 London Symphony express as much concern for the dark sides of Edwardian London as admiration for its compelling attractions? A glass of wine or Pimms is included in the price. Booking essential.
