|John Moore and Jarrett Ott|
The concert focuses on works by British composers whose lives were impacted by World War I. W. Dennis Browne and George Butterworth were killed in action, and their respective pieces represent the tragic loss of genius before their time. Ivor Gurney wrote his powerful songs in a sanitarium receiving treatment for psychological trauma from his war experience.. Though Gerald Finzi was from the next generation, he set Thomas Hardy's Channel Firing, a famous meditation on the madness of war.
