Hubert Parry (1848-1918)

Symphony No. 5 from 1912 by the English composer Hubert Parry is in four linked movements with evocative titles Stress, To like, To play, Now! However, he offered these motion titles “provided they are offered only as approximations” to their intended meanings. And yet, for the premiere, Parry wrote a convoluted explanation of his programmatic ideas behind the musical themes of the symphony. But it all boils down to the idea that “in human love lies the true hope of healing”, and the symphony ends with Love Triumphant over Tragedy. Hubert Parry’s Symphony No. 5 is today’s noon masterpiece at 2:00 p.m.
