Elgar - The Kingdom

Conductor
Sir Mark Elder

Featuring:
Natalya Romaniw, soprano
Alice Coote, mezzo-soprano
Michael Fabiano, tenor
Roderick Williams, baritone

Choir:
Edinburgh Festival Chorus
Aidan Oliver, Chorus Director

With a remarkable Siegfried in 2018 and an equally astonishing La damnation de Faust the previous year, Manchester’s Hallé and its Music Director Sir Mark Elder are a much-admired International Festival partnership.

They return with one of Elgar’s greatest, and most neglected, achievements: The Kingdom.

Exploring the lives of the twelve disciples during the Church’s earliest days, Elgar’s final oratorio is shot through with glowing passion and stately serenity. Elder has long been a passionate champion of Elgar’s noble, poignant music, and he and the Hallé are joined by four exceptional vocal soloists and the Edinburgh Festival Chorus for this deeply moving meditation on faith.
