Violinist Tasmin Little in conversation.

Taxis, street-sellers, traffic jams and fog; for Ralph Vaughan Williams, Edwardian London was a symphony just waiting to be written, packed with humour, atmosphere and delightfully hummable tunes. Listen for the chimes of Big Ben as Sir Andrew Davis shows us the sights, and then soars high above the English countryside with virtuoso Tasmin Little in The Lark Ascending. Is this the most beautiful piece of British music ever written? Little and Davis introduce another contender: Delius’s haunting, rarely-heard Légende.
