Elgar: An Extraordinary Life  

The son of a provincial piano tuner Edward Elgar rose to become one of the best loved English composers and this book presents a detailed and informative account of his life and deals with the myths and prejudices that have attached themselves to this composer.

 

The Life of Elgar (Musical Lives)  

Important documents and letters have become available in the last 25 years concerning this English composer and the author Michael Kennedy uses new material including letters written by Elgar himself in his attempt to portray his complex personality. Throughout his life Elgar remained conscious of his lower middle class origins despite his fame and friendship with the King.
