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.
Looking forward @JS_Diaspora opening a discussion with stimulus from award winning film #MyNameIs @mynameisdocu on 'Decolonising the self before we can decolonise HE & culture' @RADA_London via @InfoTCCE tomorrow as part of a broader event from 1pm to 3pm.
