Elgar’s rarely-heard oratorio ‘The Apostles’ presented by the American Symphony Orchestra at Carnegie Hall

Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall

57th Street and Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10019

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

Leon Botstein shares the stories behind the music in a lively 30-minute Conductor’s Notes Q&A at 7 PM in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. Free for all ticket holders. —ASO
