"One of the most enjoyable aspects of Elgar: An Anniversary Portrait is its eclectic compilation of perspectives on Elgar, a composer whose complexity grows with each successive publication... the interaction of histories, musicologists, biographers, and artists ensures that the book will be greatly appreciated by Elgarians, and different constituencies of readers will undoubtedly find much of value in different essays. The personal essays and reminiscences while delightful and engaging are limited as a scholarly resource; however, several of the contributions will appeal to Elgar scholars. The relative brevity of most of the essays marks them as suggestive inducements to further inquiry, but ultimately Elgar: An Anniversary Portrait successfully meets the goals implied by its title." - Dan Kline, Victorian Studies, Summer 2008--Sanford Lakoff
