Debussy would die in 1918 and had, like Elgar, composed very little during the conflict. "I want to work," he wrote to his publisher Durand, "not so much for myself, as to provide a proof, however small, that thirty million Boches can’t destroy French thought". Elgar told a friend "I cannot do any real work with the awful shadow hanging over us". Suffering from ill health, Elgar wrote the Sonata in Sussex where a copse of gnarled lightning-ravaged trees, near his house on the South Downs, inspired him to embark on three late great chamber works. Respighi’s Sonata inhabits a heroic, late-romantic, almost ‘Brahmsian’ world, seemingly unscathed by the devastation of the ‘War to end all wars’.
