 Sir Antonio Pappano leads the London Symphony Orchestra in a pair of symphonies by Ralph Vaughan Williams that span the build-up and aftermath of the Second World War.
 Throughout the Fourth Symphony Vaughan Williams channels tension and power through the music in amongst moments of light and clarity. It evokes a
sense of hardship and persistence, perhaps suggesting the ever-present threat of war in the 1930s. 
 Written in 1947, the composer’s Sixth Symphony also seems to reflect the hardships and devastation wrought by World War II. Melancholic in some
movements, ferocious in others.
 “Wartime fury and sorrow punctuate magnetic performances” - The Times (on Symphony No 6)
 “Pappano tore into it with incisive ferocity, emphasising its violence, mordant humour and almost deliberate crudity, though the radiant closing section of the first movement shone like a brief beacon of hope, and the ambiguous finale hovered between exhaustion and acceptance.” - The Guardian (Symphony No 6)
 “Most impressive of all was Pappano’s well-prepared, glamorous interpretation of Vaughan Williams’ furious Symphony no. 4 in F minor... the levels of intensity achieved by its final bars made it seem almost like a British Rite of Spring.” - Bachtrack (Symphony No 4)
 “Vaughan Williams’ Fourth Symphony tautly ferocious” - The Arts Desk (Symphony No 4)
