Energetic Edward Elgar

Elgar was born in Lower Broadheath, Worcester in 1857 and died in Worcester in 1934. Although Elgar’s father wanted to send his son to the Leipzig Conservatory, this option proved financially difficult, so Elgar worked for his father and also worked as an assistant organist. This eventually led to other jobs, including playing the violin with several orchestras and forming various chamber music groups.

One of Elgar’s huge successes came in London in 1899, with his Variations on an Original Theme (Enigma). From 1901 until about 1914, the composer was at his best, writing one hit after another including two symphonies and a violin concerto.

An Amazing Elgar Fact

Elgar was a pioneer in realizing the power of gramophone recordings. He made many recordings of his works, one of which featured Menuhin playing his violin concerto.
