Synopsis

Product Description
The great British conductor and masterful interpreter of Edward Elgars music, Sir John Barbirolli, leads a cast of singers headlined by the immortal Jon Vickers on this live 1957 performance of Elgars supreme masterpiece, The Dreams of Gerontius. Contralto Constance Shacklock appeared often on the Covent Garden and other European opera stages for 15 years, notably in Wagnerian roles. Bass Marian Nowakowski was another potent Covent Garden presence after WWII, often singing the Angel of Agony role under Barbirollis direction, and oratorio roles in general, during the 1950s-60s.
