SOMM RECORDINGS continues it's acclaimed Vaughan Williams Live series celebrating the 150th anniversary of Ralph Vaughan Williams' birth with Volume 4 featuring his signature Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis, the Concerto for Two Pianos and Eighth Symphony in recordings conducted by Dimitri Mitropoulos and Sir John Barbirolli. The Tallis Fantasia is a live recording from Carnegie Hall in 1943 with Mitropoulos, a committed advocate for Vaughan Williams' music, conducting the New York Philharmonic-Symphony Orchestra. They are also heard in the Concerto for Two Pianos, again from Carnegie Hall in 1952, when the soloists were Arthur Whittemore and Jack Lowe, who forged a widely popular and critically acclaimed piano duo partnership in America in the middle of the last century. Recorded in Manchester's Free Trade Hall in 1964, the Symphony No.8 is blazingly conducted by it's dedicatee, Sir John Barbirolli, leading the Hallé Orchestra.
