150 ans musique anglaise

From Queen Victoria to King Charles III: 150 years of music in England

The non-English-speaking public is more likely to be familiar with the music of Dowland, Purcell or Handel than that of Elgar, Vaughan Williams or Britten, perhaps because of a certain creative sluggishness in musical composition that the United Kingdom experienced for much of the 19th century. Without resorting to such epithets as 'a new golden age,' it is revealing to reconstruct the aesthetic linkage between the remarkable works composed in the reign of Queen Victoria to the flowering of British music throughout the 20th century... and beyond.
