      Baritone Roderick Williams joins the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra in music inspired by the First World War. Butterworth’s setting from Housman’s A Shropshire Lad depicts a world on the brink of collapse, while Vaughan Williams’s Pastoral Symphony is a curdled vision of war-ravaged France. Both Rudi Stephan and Frederick Kelly were killed in the conflict, the latter leaving behind the exquisite Elegy for strings, the former the more muscular Music for Orchestra (1912).
