ELGAR (THE VERY BEST OF)

From raucous marches to private enigmas, the music of Elgar represents, for many, the ultimate symbol of England in the early 20th century, contrasting royal ceremonies with intimate family gatherings. This 2-CD set features Elgar’s most frequently performed and recorded works, including selections from the ‘Enigma’ Variations, Pomp and Circumstance Marches No. 1 and No. 4, and the Cello and Violin Concertos.
