Ely Sinfonia presents An Elgar Celebration - A concert for all the family
Featuring The Enigma Variations, including Nimrod, Sea Pictures, Introduction and Allegro for Strings (with the Cassa String Quartet) all by Edward Elgar
Ely Sinfonia with Hannah Pedley (Soprano), Steve Bingham (Conductor)
80 years after his death, Ely Sinfonia celebrates the life of Edward Elgar, that most English of composers. Who has not heard his Pomp and Circumstance at the Last Night of the Proms? Or the exquisite Dream of Gerontius, his most famous choral work?
Tonights programme features another Elgar favourite, the glorious Enigma Variations, including the acclaimed Nimrod. This piece, more than any, propelled Elgar to fame.
The Introduction and Allegro for Strings is another Elgar masterpiece. Listen out for the haunting solo viola melody in the Introduction, inspired by a Welsh mountain folk tune, followed by the Allegro, which the composer described as the devil of a fugue.
Commissioned for the 1899 Norwich Festival and first performed by Dame Clara Butt, Sea Pictures is Elgars only song cycle with orchestra. The soloist for this concert, Hannah Pedley, is a rising star, winner of the 2012 award for Best Female in a Supporting Role.
