Elgar Symphony no. 1

This listing is in the past
Anvil, BasingstokeBasingstoke, South-East, RG21 7QR, United Kingdom
On Saturday 4 November 2017 at 19:45

Edward Gardner conducts a programme which opens with Elgar’s vivid evocation of an Italian holiday. In his First Symphony, Elgar followed the great symphonic tradition while managing to retain his own musical language. The steady march with which the piece opens reappears at crucial moments before being transformed into a triumphant conclusion, while the slow movement contains some of his most beautiful music.
