Great Mountains Festival - Elgar and Debussy

Great Mountains Festival from Pyeongchang, South Korea, home of the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics. Music by Elgar and Debussy. With Sarah Walker.

Sarah Walker presents highlights from the 2018 Great Mountains Festival from Pyeongchang, South Korea, home of the 2018 Winter Olympics and Paralympics.

Today, Elgar's late chamber masterpiece, his Piano Quintet Op 84 written in 1918, in turns delicate, elusive, passionate and almost orchestral. And it is paired with another late work, this time by Debussy, his Violin Sonata from 1917. It was the last Sonata that Debussy completed, and his appearance at the piano for the sonata's premiere was his last public performance.
