Elgar The Apostles
By David Pownall. The reaction to Eigar's Second Symphony, and to the Rondo in particular, only heighten the doubts and fears that have plagued the composer for much of his creative life. As he struggles to express in music the horror of the First
World War, his family and admirers endeavour to help him re-ignite his creative spark.
Director Martin Jenkins
Historian Tristram Hunt explores how Elgar's music articulated the notion of British Empire, its triumph and its decline. This aspect of the composer's work is controversial, as many feel his music is somehow tainted by its association with imperialist aims and ideals. This documentary presents contrasting views about Elgar and Empire from historians Jeffrey Richards , John Mackenzie and Bernard Porter , and from pianist David Owen Norris and conductor Mark Elder.
