A London Symphony is the second symphony composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams. The work is sometimes referred to as Symphony No. 2, though it was not designated as such by the composer. First performed in 1914, the four-movement symphony was lost, reconstructed and later modified by Vaughan Williams. The work is scored for: Woodwinds: three flutes (the third doubling piccolo), two oboes, cor anglais, two clarinets, bass clarinet, two bassoons, contrabassoon.

The Symphony No. 2 opens the album. A fairly lengthy work, it has four movements that draw on Vaughan Williams' strengths of creating layered string harmonies and graceful melodies. Once the first movement comes into audibility, it becomes quite dramatic and exciting. The brass are bright and punctuate the music of the strings. The second movement is like a slow sunrise, and then grandly sweeping and majestic in the middle of the piece.

Vaughan Williams’s London Symphony (the composer’s favourite of the nine) makes a rare appearance in its 1920 first publication. Three lesser-known works complete a highly desirable programme, while Martyn Brabbins and the BBC Symphony Orchestra understand how this music should be played like few others. This is mandatory listening. Tracklist: Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958). 1. BBC Symphony Orchestra & Martyn Brabbins – A London Symphony (Symphony No. 2): I. Lento – Allegro risoluto (14:50) 2. 2): II. Lento.
