The World's Greatest Music
A selection of uplifting and reflective music to mark Remembrance Day. Much of the music is written by composers who served in the war, or composed during war time.
Originally intended as a light-hearted counterpart to Salut d'Amour, Elgar realised his poignant music, written shortly before the start of the First World War and first performed in August 1914, was worthy of a more intense title. The word he chose, Sospiri ('Sighs'), is wonderfully descriptive of the expansive violin music, accompanied by flowing harp.
