New life springs forth in the much-loved 'Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis' by Ralph Vaughan Williams. This work is paired with another great classic, Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony. With its glorious 'swan-call' horn theme in the third movement, the Fifth Symphony remains one of the lushest and deeply moving symphonies of the 20th-century. And NZ pianist Stephen De Pledge performs Anthony Ritchie's Third Piano Concerto.
