Falstaff, Symphony Study-Fantasia & Fugue in C Minor-The Sanguine Fan-Ballet. London Philharmonic Orchestra,conducted by Sir Adrian Boult. The great Recording Producer: Christopher Bishop & Christopher Parker.
The works on this record span a late decade of Elgar”s creative life, 1913-1922. Their technique is subtle and assured, their invention masterly. Yet there is no sense of culmination about these late scores. Old ideas are harvested, old stories scanned, and finally old music itself is looked at afresh—the music of the composer whom Elgar held in supreme veneration. But a restless spirit walks through them all, a spirit still seeking to divine a past upon which some future might be built.
