Browse: Vaughan Williams - Symphony No. 5 in D major

This page lists all recordings of Symphony No. 5 in D major by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958).

Some of the themes of Vaughan Williams’ Fifth Symphony had originally been composed as part of his opera, The Pilgrim’s Progress; but in 1938 it seemed to him as though the opera would never be completed, and so the themes became incorporated into the symphony.

Although the work is dedicated to Sibelius, there is little in the music which suggests the Finnish composer’s music: Michael Kennedy writes that, although the music epitomises what might be called 'the Englishness of English music', the attentive listener to the scoring will not fail to notice the influence of Ravel, with whom Vaughan Williams studied in 1908.
