Biography

Edward Elgar, the autodidact

Edward Elgar, the composer of the famous Pomp and Circumstance, was the first “progressive” British composer according to Richard Strauss who conducted his music in 1901. He made his debut under the auspices of his organist father in humble musical circumstances in the middle of the English countryside. Indeed, the young man was never to forget the beauty of English nature: his work is a testimony to this. Neither music school nor patronage guided Elgar. He simply took an active part in local musical activities and as an autodidact, always maintained a simple and sensitive character far from the pretentions of any official career.
