Melodiya presents a recording of Edward Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius in a 1983 premiere-USSR performance by Evgeny Svetlanov and the USSR State Symphony, with significant English participation from soloists Felicity Palmer, Arthur Davies, Norman Bailey and the London Symphony Chorus conducted by Richard Hickox. Elgar’s largest composition is a deeply spiritual work, filled with plenty of dramatic and vivid episodes, well-developed vocal and choral textures and a masterful orchestral grasp, making it one of the most popular works of British music along with Handel’s Messiah.
