Format: Audio CD
This CD offers wonderfully expressive performances of Elgar's less known orchestral works. Symphonic Study 'Falstaff' is an amazingly innovative program music based on Shakespearian characters. According to Elgar, it encompasses the whole of human life - failings and sorrows, and Elgar writes, "I have enjoyed writing it more than any other music I have composed..." The music is not so accessible as Elgar's other compositions, but the more you listen to it, the more you discover ingenuity of the composer's creative mind. It is as complex, ambiguous and enigmatic as Elgar the man. No wonder he loved and identified with it so much.

Elegy, supposedly inspired by the death of Elgar's dearest friend, A.J.Jaeger 'The Nimrod', is a hauntingly beautiful masterpiece suffused with wistful contemplation. The ballet music 'Sanguine Fan'is a lovely piece of music full of subtlety and changes of mood, if not as inspired as Elgar's other works. David Lloyd-Jones/English Northern Philharmonia plays each work with poetic imagination and heart-felt intimacy.

This disc, recorded in 1996, contains two well-known works plus one which may be new to many listeners. The insert sleeve notes are a model of their kind and will prove to be particularly in following Elgar's pictorial intentions when composing Falstaff. The six main sections are also indexed and titles on the back cover. If only other manufacturers of discs could do the same ...!

Falstaff was one of Elgar's favourite compositions and he lavished considerable care on it. Essentially it is a series of linked/continuous tableaux charting Falstaff's dissolute relationship with 'Hal' who later became King Henry V and who lost no time at that point in rejecting Falstaff. Falstaff, cut to the core, declines and then dies quietly. All of this is fully described in ways that anyone could follow in the notes and so the very fine performance that Lloyd-Jones obtains from his orchestra can be more fully appreciated.

The Elegy is another well-known composition which hardly need any detailed comment from me other than to confirm that it is also well played. The last item in the whole of Elgar's short ballet, the Sanguine fan. This is set in Classical mythological times and features Pan, Echo and Eros plus a young couple. The couple fall out, the young man curses Eros on his statue and is promptly despatched by a thunderbolt. That is the only dramatic moment in the ballet which follows a regular pastoral idyll's course of imagery up to that point. Pan and Echo then depart with their own amorous ideas in mind! This is a pleasant 18 minutes of fanciful licence. The fan, from which the ballet takes its name, is dropped by the girl before she deserts her young man - hence the adjective, 'sanguine.' Needless to say this is fully described in the sleeve notes.
