Discover the music styles that evolved in Britain from 1899 to 1914, at our Edwardian Legacy concert.
Explore the 20th-century streets of London through Edward Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture (1901) and bask in the soaring notes of Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending (1914).
Hear the quintessentially English style of Elgar’s evocative and introspective Sospiri (1914) while his unique Sea Pictures (1899), scored for a solo female voice and consisting of five poems, looks forward to new horizons. The period’s burgeoning folksong genre then takes on a more popular, music-hall tone in Percy Grainger’s Mock Morris and Londonderry (1908, 1909).
Simon Ible, conductor.
Alison Kettlewell, mezzo-soprano.
