Sospiri

:"For the Italian racing driver, see Vincenzo Sospiri."

Sospiri, Op. 70, is an adagio for string orchestra, harp and organ (or harmonium) composed by Edward Elgar just before the beginning of World War I. It was first performed on August 15, 1914 in Queen's Hall in London under the baton of Sir Henry Wood. The work is quite short, about 5 minutes in length. The Italian word "Sospiri" means Sighs.
