Book description

A Shire Publication..

Forever linked to the Last Night of the Proms, the Three Choirs Festival in Gloucester, Hereford and Worcester cathedrals, and his evocative ‘Enigma Variations’, Edward Elgar’s music is a joy to choral societies and orchestras worldwide. The son of a piano tuner, born in a tiny cottage in Worcestershire, brought up as a Roman Catholic in Protestant England, without university education or formal musical training, Elgar overcame these disadvantages to become the most famous British composer of his generation…Ref: 630
