Petroc Trelawny presents an all-Elgar concert recorded at London's Royal Festival Hall. The first half presents the patriotic side to the composer, as the Nursery Suite was dedicated to members of the Royal Family, while the achingly moving Spirit of England is a meditation written after the First World War. The remainder of the concert features two of Elgar's best-loved orchestral works, including the famous Enigma Variations. Elgar: Civic Fanfare; National Anthem arrangement; Nursery Suite; The Spirit of England; Introduction and Allegro for strings; Variations on an original theme (Enigma Variations).
