Elgar - Cello Concerto
When trying to think of a great piece of English music this cello concerto always springs to mind. It was one of the first pieces of English music I had heard while studying in the US. The recording with the wonderful Jaqueline DuPre would be one of my ‘desert island discs’. You can ear that very recording on Spotify by clicking the link below.
Just as a side note Elgar came around from the anaesthetic after an operation with this tune already in his head…glad he found a piece of paper to write it down!
