Elegy for Brahms
The Elegy for Brahms is a short symphonic movement for orchestra, written by Hubert Parry in 1897. It was written shortly after the death of Johannes Brahms, whom Parry considered the greatest artist of the time.
The work was not performed in Parry's lifetime. Following his own death in October 1918, it was performed at a memorial concert for him at the Royal College of Music on 8 November 1918, conducted by Sir Charles Villiers Stanford, who had slightly revised the work.
It did not receive its second performance until 1977.
