Lest we forget: music for Remembrance Day
The composer of this work has a direct link to some of the worst conflicts of the First World War – the Australian and British composer Frederick Septimus Kelly wrote his Elegy for Strings at Gallipoli in 1915 in memory of his friend, the poet Rupert Brooke. Kelly was killed in action during the First World War in November 1916.
