  1. Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis - Ralph Vaughan Williams
  2. Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No 25 in C K 503 - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  3. Symphony No 5 in D - Ralph Vaughan Williams

This journey across the ages is also the exemplification of melody and passion: from Tallis’s unforgettable 450-year-old psalm-tune (heard through early-twentieth-century ears) through the last of Mozart’s twelve renowned Viennese piano concertos (only, though, becoming part of the repertoire in the late twentieth-century) to one of the most glorious of modern symphonies (Wilfrid Mellers wrote that this was “music imbued with what one can only call greatness of soul… the consummation of the lifetime’s work of a great and good man” ). Additionally, we can experience how Vaughan Williams’s career progressed – or, more accurately, was progressing… – because, even at the age of seventy, the Fifth wasn’t the large-scale farewell that had been expected: there were four more such works still to be composed!
