This compilation album of Elgar's music provides a good introduction for anyone who doesn't know the variety of Elgar's styles and compositions. From the drama of 'Pomp and Circumstance' to the elegiac 'Nimrod' from the Enigma Variations, this CD offers a comprehensive overview which should serve as a preliminary exploration before delving into Elgar's works more thoroughly. This very British composer shows the best of British from pageantry to pastoral, and this selection of music will simply whet the listener's appetite for more.

Edward Elgar, 1857-1934, English.

"There is music in the air, music all around us, the world is full of it and you simply take as much as you require". (Edward Elgar).

This Naxos CD is aimed at the beginner or occasional classical music listener and aims to provide a cross section of the entire works of Elgar on a single CD of around one hour duration. It's difficult of course to achieve a satisfactory representation of a composer's lifetime achievements in such short time, but this CD does achieve its aim in that it offers an affordable introduction to Elgar which may enable the listener to either pursue these works further, or simply to collect the entire Naxos `Best Of' range.

If the intention is to collect the series it will provide a good, although slightly abbreviated, library of classical music. Those requiring further listening are helped by the sleeve notes which give recommended further listening (all Naxos label CD's of course!).

It should be noted that the Naxos 2CD `Very Best Of' releases offer slightly better value than the single CD versions in this `Best Of' series.

That said, this is a good introduction to classical music for those on a careful budget.

The complete Naxos `Best Of' series (those indicated* also have `Very Best Of' releases):

Bach*, Bartok, Beethoven*, Berlioz, Bizet, Brahms, Chopin*, Debussy*, Dvorak*, Elgar*, Faure, Gershwin, Glazunov, Grieg*, Handel*, Haydn, Liszt, Lutoslawski, Mendelsshon, Mozart*, Paganini, Prokofiev, Puccini*, Rachmaninov*, Ravel*, Rimsky-Korsakov, Rossini, Saint-Saens, Schubert, Schumann, Satie*, Shostakovich*, Sibelius*, Strauss (Johann) II*, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky*, Verdi*, Vivaldi*, Wagner, Weber.

Excellent product,great quality at a keen price,this CD gives the buyer a marvellous taste of this most"English" composers greatest works,emanating from Victorian times and the early part of the 20th century. Elgars music positively reeks of Britains Imperial greatness in those far off days,and it still has a resonance which chimes precisely with the difficult times,and challenges the country faces,even now. Its very inspirational, speaks of courage,determination,fair play,and high moral purpose,things of which there is a very great need for in the 21st century also,and I defy anyone not to stand a little straighter,feel a little more proud iof their heritage,and a bit better about themselves too,after they've listened to it.
This CD is really a taster,to encourage the interested listener to rediscover the other works of this remarkable man,so buy it,and you won't be disappointed.

Given as a gift to the sister and husband of my penfriend from Germany. I had not seen any of them for sixty-plus years. It was by way of thank you for entertaining me whilst I was there in Germany.

Noisy and at times almost jarring with a sense of boy scout bands in the marches! But overall it is a reasonable disc for in car use. The disc does manage to catch (in the string pieces) the sense of loss and regret that can be so moving in Elgar's work.

high quality recording for a top class composer. If someone asks you why you feel so proud to be British, just make him listen to this "chef d'oeuvre".

this CD does not match up to modern interprtetations and performances. I was disappointed. But then perhaps we are spoilt by so much excellence today
