Friday Night Specials
Event date and time: 
Fri, 04/05/2012 - 20:00

The impact of WW1 affected British composers for many years after the guns fell silent. Elgar and Bridge composed cello concertos. Vaughan Williams and Bax symphonies while Delius and Blass oratorios to express their feeling of loss and horror of the four years of fighting. John Wilkinson presents a program developed with fellow British music specialist David Taylor, in which he surveys some of the music of this time – the catharsis before moving towards a more optimistic future.
