Programme Note

Music by Rossini, Dvořák and Vaughan Williams.

"If the listener will imagine himself standing on Westminster Embankment at night, surrounded by the distant sounds of The Strand... with its crowded streets and flaring lights, it may serve as a mood in which to listen to this movement." Ralph Vaughan Williams on the third movement of A London Symphony
