Symposium 128

December 2, 2018

Works by Elgar, Charles Villiers Stanford, and Songs on texts of Shakespeare.

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.
