Great Organ: Edward Elgar, Symphony No. 1

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 3, 2017
7:30 PM – 9:30 PM, GREAT CHOIR

Join us for the U.S. premiere of Artist in Residence David Briggs’ transcription of Elgar’s deeply moving First Symphony (1908). This work underwent a long gestation—Elgar was 51 when he wrote it, and the piece offers a long look into the composer’s character: by turns aristocratic, volatile, nature-loving, wistful, and passionately romantic.
