Browse: Vaughan Williams - Symphony No. 4 in F minor

This page lists all recordings of Symphony No. 4 in F minor by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958).

The Fourth Symphony marks a significant change of Vaughan Williams’ style from the preceding symphonies, with a harsher and more dissonant harmonic style. This new style does not detract from an overall boisterous and tempestuous mood.

As the symphony was completed in 1934, some commentators interpreted it as a reflection of an increasingly dangerous international situation, an interpretation which Vaughan Williams vigorously refuted.

It has been said that the symphony even contains elements of self-portraiture, with Vaughan Williams’ “outbursts of temper… his gusty humour and ribaldry” appearing between the formal processes and orchestral discords that he was experimenting with.
