Edward Elgar

Sir Edward Elgar (photo: Tully Potter)
Born: 1857
Died: 1934

Elgar worked firmly within conventional 19th century German harmonic and structural traditions, yet his voice is quintessentially English. His lyrical side conjures up tranquil pastoral beauty; his pomposity and ebullience remind us of the British bulldog – one with teeth.
