Elgar: The Dream of Gerontius

Sunday 10 February 2019 7:00 PM
Queen Elizabeth Hall, Southbank Centre, London SE1 8XX

Crouch End Festival Chorus
London Mozart Players
David Temple conductor
Kitty Whately mezzo-soprano
Robert Murray tenor
Ashley Riches baritone/bass

The Dream of Gerontius, based on a poem by Cardinal John Henry Newman, is Elgar’s most famous and loved choral work. He wrote at the end of the manuscript score: ‘This is the best of me … this, if anything of mine, is worth your memory.’ Despite a premiere that did not do it justice, it was later hailed as a success and helped elevate Elgar to the forefront of European composers.

Music Director David Temple has conducted many memorable performances of Elgar’s great choral works. With three superb story-telling soloists in mezzo-soprano Kitty Whately, tenor Robert Murray and baritone Ashley Riches baritone alongside Crouch End Festival Chorus and the London Mozart Players, this performance promises to be another great occasion.
