Description: The two symphonies by Sir Edward Elgar (1857-1934) in this collection represent some of the much-loved English composer's best and most powerful work. The Symphony No. 1 in A-flat Major (Op. 55), termed by Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians "the majestic opening of the richest period in Elgar's career, " created a sensation and was performed more than 100 times in the year of its debut. Its companion piece in this edition. Symphony No. 2 in E-flat Major (Op. 63), achieves an even greater degree of clarity and directness of expression. According to Grove's, "it may be taken to be the high-water mark of Elgar's creative genius in instrumental music. Schwann lists about 30 recordings of these two popular works. Reproduced from authoritative scores in this handy, high-quality volume, the symphonies are sure to be warmly welcomed by musicians and music lovers.
