Elgar liked to compose in the open air. He would stride for hours in the Malvern hills, forming compositions in his head, and returning home at night to write them down.  "This music is what I hear all day," he told a friend. "The trees are singing my music - or have I sung theirs?"


I was just thinking how landscapes are perfect with classical music.

Thank you so much for sharing.

How did I get to 56 years of age without knowing of this? Shudderingly, woundingly beautiful.


I don't like all of Elgar's works, but those I do like, I like immensely


Ken Shersley Same for me, heard /wachted this at broadcasting of Last night of the Proms (BBC). That version is not on youtube (yet), but it was incredible.


I first heard this piece as a soundtrack to a documentary on Dr Bob Ballard's discovery and dive on the wreck of the Titanic. This piece played as the unmanned submersible JJ, shot it's camera looking down while swimming just over the full length of the deck in clear water. It then entered, down the grand staircase and swam into the state rooms. I don't think I have ever seen a piece of music more perfectly matched to the images that accompanied it. Very touching.

I worked many times with George Hurst, both in the Bournemouth Sinfonietta and Symphony Orchestras. I can say that he was a fine musician and conductor - provided you weren't the kind of musician who expected everything mapped out in advance, with no changes on the night. He was musically spontaneous and loved by those who appreciated this. This is a fine example of his musicianship. God bless you George.

I saw George Hurst conduct this music (Sospiri) at Bournemouth Winter Gardens in 1968. I met you Roger when we both lived in Peterborough. .
