Product description

Review

"'The perfect short introduction to Elgar... which brings out the composer's indubitable greatness and his profound humanity... Those who don't know the story will be charmed by it, and those who do will be sent, immediately, back to the music to listen and learn again.' Simon Heffer, Spectator 'Written with deep and unmatched scholarship, Elgar: Child of Dreams is a seam'ess read... its effect is inspirational and had me dipping in and out of various Elgar recordings to catch the hidden references in the "broad, noble, chivairous, healthy and... out-of-door music" I thought I knew so well: Classic FM Magazine 'Pocket-sized and beautifully presented. I found it a goldmine.' Independent"

Synopsis

Jerrold Northrop Moore pursues his quest for the essential Elgar and sets out the story of an extraordinary creative life. It shows themes of childhood, fantasy and vision fusing into a mature style of nobility and nostalgia. Above all, it links the composer to the English landscape that informed all of his work from his earliest years. This powerful short book is the outcome of half a century's thought and reflection by a leading Elgar biographer.
