Gardner conducts Elgar

Thursday 3 Apr 2014, 7.30pm
Royal Festival Hall, London

Concert

Edward Gardner conductor

Ruxandra Donose mezzo soprano

A glorious programme charting the three main stages of Romanticism, from Berlioz through Wagner to the sunset glow of Elgar’s majestic First Symphony, a work so overwhelming that the première audience began applauding at the end of the slow movement, forcing Elgar to come on stage and take a bow before continuing.
