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.

Just one of the many exciting Examination publication products from our immense range of Sheet Music, Songbooks and Music Gifts for all Musicians, Teachers, Bands, Choirs, and Schools.
