Read Review

“The only recording of Gerontius in recent times to challenge, even shake, the supremacy of Barbirolli,” wrote Edward Seckerson in January. Sir Mark Elder “draws us patiently, unerringly, into the profound mystery of the piece, judiciously weighing its theatricality against its inwardness”. The Hallé’s glorious recording represents the pinnacle of the orchestra’s association with Elgar’s monumental work under Elder. Mezzo Alice Coote and tenor Paul Groves joined the Hallé Orchestra, Choir and Youth Choir back in 2005 for a successful Proms appearance and they are joined on this recording by the ever-wonderful Bryn Terfel.
