Browse: Vaughan Williams - Symphony No. 6 in E minor

This page lists all recordings of Symphony No. 6 in E minor by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958).

In the 1940s Vaughan Williams began composing film music: he discovered that it had a liberating effect on him, causing him to find more possibilities for his orchestral music.

His Sixth Symphony, first performed in 1948, was a reflection of his renewed musical explorations, and caused a sensation: it was eventually performed more than 100 times in its first year.

As with the Fourth Symphony, critics and commentators saw it as a reflection of the world war that had shortly preceded it; and again, Vaughan Williams denied this.
