Vaughan Williams: A Sea Symphony
Elgar: Enigma Variations
Canterbury Philharmonic Orchestra
Katherine Crompton Soprano
Edward Grint Bass
Two of the the most voluptuous English 20th century compositions come together to bathe the Cathedral in glorious sounds. Vaughan Williams captures the differing moods of the sea with the text of Walt Whitman, and brings heart-rending intensity to the image of earth the “great rondure swimming in space”. Elgar’s Enigma Variations, perhaps the finest variations ever written for orchestra, capture in turn the characteristics of his friends (and a lively dog!), most deeply in that of his closest friend depicted in the ‘Nimrod' variation. An opportunity to hear two grand-scale works in the great setting of Canterbury Cathedral.
