Elgar The Dream of Gerontius
In the heart of ‘Elgar country’, Gerontius is perhaps the work most synonymous with today’s Three Choirs Festival. In turn both theatrical and breathlessly delicate, earthly and ethereal, there is no wonder this work has endured in audiences’ hearts decade after decade. Conducted tonight by a celebrated champion of British music, Martyn Brabbins, alongside a stellar cast of soloists, this is sure to be a memorable performance of a festival favourite.
