It seems to me that all the music and documentaries about Antarctica use the Vaughn Williams sound world from his famed symphony..and that includes the me-too symphony of the same name by Maxwell Davies.
This speaks volumes about the genius of Vaughan Williams.
The 9th was less memorable for me, perhaps because of the saxaphone, which seemed out of context for this basically conservative composer.
But I must hear it again..I have the Boult Everest recording. The sax is there for a reason..
