Ralph Vaughan Williams
Edited by Stephen Hogger
Ralph Vaughan Williams originally wrote three Norfolk Rhapsodies with the intention of turning them into a three-movement Norfolk Symphony. This, the second rhapsody, is a telescoped slow movement and scherzo, which has been completed and edited by Stephen Hogger. The first has long been in the repertoire, but numbers two and three have not been performed since 1914. The third rhapsody unfortunately did not survive.
