Edward Elgar
(1857 - 1934)



"My idea is that 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."

Edward Elgar

English composer whose works in the orchestral idiom of late 19th-century Romanticism—characterised by bold tunes, striking colour effects, and mastery of large forms—stimulated a renaissance of English music.
