The Lost Chord: January 28 - Wrestling Jacob

Jan 28, 2018

Gordon Jacob is perhaps best known these days as an orchestrator, but he was also a prolific composer.  In fact, when weighing the size of his output against his reputation, it’s tempting to underestimate – as the Angel did his Biblical namesake – Jacob’s tenacity.  Join me for Jacob’s “William Byrd Suite,” and then music of a more serious nature:  his Symphony No. 1, dedicated to the memory of his brother, who died on the Somme.  We grapple with the legacy of Jacob, this Sunday at 10 pm.
