Pre-concert talk at 5.30pm with Robert Hugill: It runs gigantically and in a large mood
Towards the end of the First World War, Elgar was in poor health and his wife thought it best for him to move to the countryside, and she rented a house in Sussex. There he would write three remarkable late masterpieces of chamber music. Robert Hugill explores this period of Elgar’s life and introduces the music from tonight’s concert.
