Elgar and Academe

Monday 28 July 2008 23:00-23:15 (Radio 3)

Four commentators reflect on aspects of Elgar in the context of his time and after, exploring the contradictions and enigmas in his complex and paradoxical personality.

Duration:

15 minutes

Playlist:

1/4. Elgar and Academe

Elgar was appointed the first Peyton Professor of Music at Birmingham University in 1905 and in a series of lectures outlined, among other things, his view of the future for English Music. Julian Rushton, a former Professor of Music at the University of Leeds, takes this as his staring point to examine Elgar's relationship with the musical academic world, both during his lifetime and afterwards.
