Admired for his authentic and original voice, the British composer Ralph Vaughan Williams created soundscapes that seem to emerge right from the mists of the English countryside. Tonight we enjoy the stunningly beautiful Tallis Fantasia for strings as well as his powerful but little-heard Toward the Unknown Region, for chorus and orchestra – alongside music from Hungarian composer Miklós Rózsa, and original work by Music Director & Conductor Gregory Vajda.
