EMPIRE'S END

Edward Elgar—Piano Quintet

Charles Villiers Stanford—Piano Quartet #2 (American premiere)

Shakespeare songs by Quilter, Finzi, and Gurney

We travel forward from London as a mecca for continental artists to the twilight of the metropolis as the center of an Empire. Beloved artists of Helicon join with newcomers to perform this last generation of romantic composers that embody the end of an era, a moment where the world stood on the edge of a cliff.
