Day School: Love's Embers Composers During the Great War View details

The First World War was a watershed in terms of cultural matters. The nature of the conflict meant that a world-view encompassing such cataclysmic events replaced the perceived certainties of the years immediately preceding it. Composers including George Butterworth were tragic victims of the fighting, while the output of Elgar and Vaughan WiIliams demonstrated contrasting paths that were taken by those who survived. The music of many other figures, some well-known and others now sadly almost forgotten will provide Learners with poignant and stirring examples of how art can reflect and even ennoble such conflicts.
