About this Recording

MUSICAL JOURNEY (A) - ENGLAND: Worcester and the Malverns (NTSC)


ENGLAND

 

The Places
The places visited are principally in the west of England, the heart of 'Elgar country', with its half-timbered houses, great cathedrals and churches, rivers and verdant landscape. There are glimpses of the Malvern hills, of Hereford and Worcester, and excursions to London and to Scotland, in views largely associated with the life of the composer Edward Elgar.

The Music
The music of Elgar was rooted in his own part of England. His Enigma Variations offers portraits of his friends and neighbours, the enigma lying in the unrevealed melody that he claimed would be generally known and that would go with the whole set of variations. The puzzle remains unsolved. Other music used includes Elgar's Serenade for Strings, Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1, and Salut d'amour.
