Falstaff Symphonic Study / Fant. & Fugue / Sanguine Fan - Elgar (three late pieces, subtle, assured & masterly - ASD 2970)

£6.99

Product description

(featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Adrian Boult)

The works on this album are all from Edward Elgar's (1857-1934) later period, all post-1913. What the three featured compositions all share is their technique, which is subtle and assured.

Elgar had wanted to compose a work, based around the ideas surrounding William Shakespeare's "Falstaff", for at least a decade, before completing his "Falstaff Symphonic Study", in Late Summer 1913. In this work, Elgar seeks, and indeed succeeds, in distilling the essence of the Shakespearean character, who might be funny, generous or even vicious, depending on how the theatre audience-member sees him.
Side One : Falstaff Symphonic Study in C minor Op.68, by Elgar.

One of Elgar's very late works, the brilliant transcription of "Fantasia & Fugue" (1922) represents one of the Englishman's most immediate attempts to confront the brave, new, post WWI world, making his one of his final statements for the large orchestra of his most profound imagination.
Side Two : 1) Fantasia & Fugue in C minor, by Elgar.

"The Sanguine Fan" (Mid-1910s) came about, as a result of Elgar's desire at the time, to explore the stage directly as a medium for his music, and also him being approached by a lady who wished to create a ballet, with the central theme of a fan-design in sanguine.
Side Two : 2) The Sanguine Fan, by Elgar.

Records graded visually to RRPG grades (record/sleeve) EX+/EX-.
