Sir Mark Elder conductor | Simon Callow presenter
Sophie Bevan soprano | Toby Spence tenor

Tonight we acknowledge that patriotic First World War plea to ‘keep the home fires burning’ in a tribute to a silent-movie actor, West End playwright, composer and star of a string of stage musicals hugely popular in their day.

Ivor Novello, the most consistently successful composer of British musicals before the advent of Andrew Lloyd Webber, nowadays tends to be unjustly neglected. Sir Mark Elder is a committed advocate, as is tonight’s master of ceremonies, Simon Callow.

Elgar The Apostles
(interval after part 1)

Sir Mark Elder conductor 
Rebecca Evans soprano | Alice Coote mezzo soprano
Paul Groves tenor | Iain Paterson bass-baritone
Jacques Imbrailo baritone | Clive Bayley bass
Hallé Choir | Hallé Youth Choir 
London Philharmonic Choir 

The music of Elgar is in Sir Mark Elder’s blood. Tonight, in the company of vast choral and orchestral forces and a stellar cast of soloists, he conducts the composer’s rarely-performed masterpiece The Apostles. A work that deserves far greater recognition (some critics believe it superior to The Dream of Gerontius), its mystic choruses and its vivid orchestration are just a few of its more remarkable features. The work’s closing section – depicting Christ’s Ascension to heaven – is surely one of the most poignant ever written.
