Ralph Vaughan Williams: Symphony No.3

Books | Orchestra

Publisher: Faber Music
Format: Sheet Music | Score

A heartfelt and subtly beautiful tribute to the dead of the First World War, Vaughan WilliamsThird Symphony is amongst his most powerful works. Misunderstood at its premiere in 1922, the haunting 35-minute elegy is almost entirely quiet and contemplative, though beneath its tranquillity lays a deep sadness. In the second movement a lone Trumpet calls over a bleak and desolate landscape whilst the fourth and final movement is framed by a wordless lament for solo Soprano. Faber Music publishes this long-awaited hardback critical edition.
