'Behold, the sea!' This nautical programme brings together two contrasting works imbued with a sense of adventure and the mighty power of the sea. Vaughan Williams’ strikingly original A Sea Symphony announces itself with a brass fanfare and from its first notes conjures a vision of panoramic horizons and brave voyage.
