Stephen Johnson Insight
Elgar Piano Quintet Op.84

with Zsuzsa Berenyi (violin) and Morgan Goff (viola)

A close contemporary of the Cello Concerto Sol Gabetta plays at the launch of our season, the haunting and haunted Piano Quintet reflects Elgar’s experience of the emotional collateral damage of World War I. “It’s strange music”, he confided to the critic Ernest Newman, “and I like it – but it’s ghostly stuff”.
