Elgar 1st & 2nd Symphonies
One British composer stands out — Elgar — whose works vary from the lightest and most tuneful chamber music, marches, suites and overtures, to large scale choral works. In between are two masterful symphonies which are rightly regarded as amongst the finest ever composed. The first is full of grandeur while the second is alive with melody. Taken together they represent a high point of British music of which everyone should be aware.
Wonderful music from a truly great composer.
