Arguably the most significant C20th British composer, R.V.W. (1872- 1958) contributed great music in almost every format: symphonies and operas to hymn tunes and folk-song arrangements. He intersected with many other great musicians: Holst, Butterworth, Barbirolli and Boult. Come, explore his long and fascinating life.
