Elgar Piano Quintet in A minor
Schumann Frauenliebe und –leben
Beverley’s most famous son, prolific artist Fred Elwell (1870-1945), provides the inspiration for this concert, accompanied by projections of some of his images. Elgar’s poignant and nostalgic Piano Quintet, full of longing for a better time, was written in the shadow of the First World War and illuminates the age of Elwell. Elwell’s figurative subjects explore some of the most intimate and personal stages of life, and so are paired with Schumann’s ‘A Woman’s Love and Life’. A richly romantic exploration of music and art.
