How did the son of a provincial piano tuner rise to international fame? Was the English countryside the principle inspiration for Elgar's music? Was this moustachioed, red- blooded, imperialist all that he seemed...? In this fascinating & accessible history, J.P.E. Harper-Scott takes a combative swipe at many of the critical myths & prejudices that have attached themselves to the figure of Elgar, revealing both a surprisingly elusive personality & a deeper, often darker, message in his works.
