"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.
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.
