Sir Edward Elgar

Edward Elgar

Surrounded by sheet music and instruments in his father's shop in Worcester's High Street, the young Elgar became self-taught in music. On warm summers' days, he would take manuscripts into the countryside to study them. Thus there began for him a strong association between music and nature. As he was later to say, 'There is music in the air, music all around us, the world is full of it and you simply take as much as you require.'

Having left school at the age of 15, he began work for a local solicitor, but after a year embarked on a musical career, conducting piano and violin lessons. At 22 he took up the post of bandmaster at the Worcester and County Lunatic Asylum, a couple of miles to the southwest of Worcester. In many ways, his years as a young Worcestershire violinist were his happiest. He played in the first violins at the Worcester and Birmingham Festivals, and one great experience was to play Antonin Dvorak's Sixth Symphony and 'Stabat Mater' under the composer's baton. Elgar was thrilled by Dvorak's orchestration and this remained an influence on his own style for more than a decade.

Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge : Choral Music of Edward Elgar : 00  1 CD : Richard Marlow : Edward Elgar : 49262

Choir of Trinity College, Cambridge : Choral Music of Edward Elgar

Review: Richard Marlow's final recording as director of the Trinity College choir (Cambridge, England)! The choral works of Edward Elgar are gems of the English Romantic tradition. Under the direction of Marlow, the choir of Trinity College was the first mixed choir in a Cambridge college. As an adult mixed choir, they have the distinctive, clear English sound we admire, but with the power that only mature voices can produce. Highly recommended!

Songlist: Give Unto the Lord, Ave vernum, Ave Maria, Ave maris stella, Light out of darkness, Intende voci orationis meae, Good Morrow, Te Deum, Benedictus, I sing the Birth, Doubt not, Fear not, Light of the world, They are at rest, Great is the Lord (Psalm 48)

Finzi Singers : Elgar - Part Songs : 00  1 CD : Paul Spicer : Edward Elgar : 9269

Finzi Singers : Elgar - Part Songs

Review: The Finzi Singers seem to know just what is required of them, bringing their imaginative style to some of the best partsongs. The programme is arranged chronologically until the last five pieces, which form a kind of encore-group or coda to the recital. From Op. 18 to Op. 73 is quite a journey. In years, it goes from 1890 (the date of My love dwelt in a Northern land, from Op. 18) to 1914: most of Elgar's creative life lies between. The imaginative freedom and technical assurance of the 1914 settings are attributes hard won in the period that divides these compositions from the easier charm and geniality of the early sets. Yet, returning to those, one finds a very characteristic strength, whether of melody, harmony or phrasing.

Songlist: O Happy Eyes, Love, My Love Dwelt in a Northern Land, Yea, Cast me from Heights of the Mountains, Whether I Find Thee, Aver Many a Dusty Mile, It's Oh! to be a Wild Wind, Feasting I Watch, There is Sweet Music, Deep in My Soul, O Wild West Wind!, Owls (An Epitaph), The Shower, The Fountain, Death on the Hills Op. 72, Love's Tempest, Serenade, How Calmly the Evening, Weary Wind of the West, Wvening Scene, The Prince of Sleep, Go, Song of Mine Op. 57
