Written at the height of his creative powers, the glorious Symphony No. 2 ("A London Symphony") by English composer Ralph Vaughan Williams is timeless in its beauty. By turns lyrical, mystical, nostalgic, and boldly energetic, this magnificent work, inspired by the sights and sounds of London, is one of the composer's first great masterpieces.

The exciting Violin Concerto No. 2 by Czech composer Bohuslav Martinu is almost symphonic in scale and is a profound and exhilarating work. Taking on the virtuosic challenge of the solo part, award-winning violinist Susie Park makes her triumphant return to the NYRO stage!
