Elgar: Piano Concerto

Towards the end of his life, in the late 1920s and early 30s, Edward Elgar assembled a number of pages of short sketches and fragments for a Piano Concerto. Over the past few years, composer Robert Walker has worked on a realisation of these fragments of Elgar, expanding them into a substantial work. In this programme composer and pianist examine the process of composing a Romantic piano concerto out of the characteristic elements that Elgar left to posterity.
