Prom 17 brought the BBC National Orchestra of Wales to London for a program that was highlighted by two quietly beautiful compositions by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

The final work in the first half(about 31:00)was his Lark Ascending, featuring beautiful solo violin passages.

The concluding work of the concert(about 1:52)was his 3rd Symphony, which despite generally peaceful passages and its title "Pastoral", in fact reflected the horror of his experiences as an ambulance driver in WWI.


Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
