Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony and Elgar Enigma Variations

Two of the most voluptuous English 20th century compositions come together to bathe the Cathedral in glorious sounds. Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony captures the differing moods of the sea with the text of Walt Whitman. It brings heart-rending intensity to the image of Earth the ‘vast rondure swimming in space’. Elgar’s Enigma Variations, perhaps the finest ever written for orchestra, capture in turn the characteristics of his friends (and a lively dog!). Elgar’s closest friend is depicted most deeply in the Nimrod variation.
 
This is an opportunity to hear two grand-scale works in the great setting of Canterbury Cathedral.
