  • Elgar The Dream of Gerontius95′

“This is the best of me,” wrote Edward Elgar on the score of The Dream of Gerontius, and this story of a lonely soul’s journey towards eternity is told in music of startling passion and heartbreaking beauty. It’s one of the supreme masterpieces of British music – and it was created here in Birmingham. Edward Gardner returns to conduct this CBSO Centenary performance.

CBSO+ 18 April, 5.45pm: Listen to conductor Edward Gardner and CBSO Chief Executive Stephen Maddock in conversation about Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius.
