Edward Elgar: Symphony No. 1 transcribed for organ
Join us for the US premiere of David Briggs’ transcription of Elgar’s deeply moving First Symphony (1908). This work underwent a long gestation (he was 51 when he wrote it) and offers an intense insight into the character of the composer - in turns aristocratic, volatile, nature-loving, wistful and often passionately romantic.
