The Nash Ensemble and pianist Ashley Wass mark 100 years since the Armistice in the War's Embers series at LSO St Luke's. Today, Ashley Wass plays music by Bridge, Bax and Elgar.

Fiona Talkington presents the third of 4 concerts from a series of concerts called War's Embers recorded with the Nash Ensemble and Ashley Wass at LSO St Luke's in London to mark 100 years since the Armistice of November 1918 was declared. Today, Ashley Wass performs solo piano works written by Arnold Bax, Frank Bridge and Edward Elgar in response to the horrors of the First World War. The recital ends with Bridge's Piano Sonata, written between 1921 and 1924, which was his first important post-war work in which his complex later style emerges.
