Elgar - The Dream of Gerontius Listen [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K55d9a8j8WE]

Free pre-concert talk at 6.45pm by Dan Holden.
The concert will be finished by approximately 9.30pm.

As a man faces his death he contemplates his life, led on his journey to heaven by an angel to await his fate. Along the way he encounters friends, angels, demons and souls – with the hope of a final re-awakening to glory.

Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius is a towering monument of English choral music. The apocalyptic work reflects an eclectic range of influences: Wagner, Verdi, Anglican and Catholic liturgical music, and even – in its ‘Demons Chorus’ – echoes of Victorian music-hall.

An epic adaptation of John Henry Newman’s poem, of this work Elgar wrote, ‘This is the best of me’. Arguably his greatest achievement, The Dream of Gerontius will be an overwhelmingly sublime closing to the 2018/19 Leeds International Orchestral Season.
