Elgar's The Apostles

American Symphony Orchestra

Carnegie Hall Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage

One of England’s greatest composers wrote a rarely-heard setting of the New Testament. Elgar’s The Apostles follows the story of the twelve apostles through the Resurrection. On par with his previous choral work, The Dream of Gerontius, this oratorio is at once sublime and heartbreakingly human.
