About Vaughan Williams

English composer, organist, and violinist Ralph Vaughan Williams studied at the Royal College of Music and Cambridge; only achieving success as a composer later in life, he initially worked as a church organist and became an enthusiast for folk-song collecting in the tradition of Cecil Sharp. After studies with several more traditionalist composers, Vaughan Williams took composition lessons from Ravel for a brief but personally transformative time; following his return from Paris, Vaughan Williams began to compose works in the style for which he is now known, folk-influenced and texturally complex.
