Format: Audio CD
This recording is generous in its musical offerings. At mid-price (really super-bargain price on a per disc basis) you get a spendidly recorded and performed account of both symphonies and the marches as fillers. While there are slightly stronger Elgar couplings of the two symphonies with additional pieces (such as Solti on a Decca Double Decker and Previn on a Philips Duo) this set is thoroughly recommendable among the best Elgar recordings available.
The recording quality, made in the Abbey Road studios, throughout is luxurious and finely detailed at once (though the sound at the start of the 2nd symphony sounds slightly boxed in). The organ accompaniment in the Coronation March is wonderfully dramatic and powerful. Simply put there is great enjoyment to be found in this set at every turn.

The reviewer from Shaumburg is absolutely correct in his or her review: the sound of these discs is magnificent and the organ, used in a few tracks, is very "cool" (if that word may be used). If you haven't heard the Pomp Marches in their entirety, here's a great way to do so; all are great compositions. And don't let the inexpensive cost deter you--the recording is luxurious and worth triple the price!

Elgar: Symphonies 1 and 2, Pomp and Circumstance, Marches

Sir Edward William Elgar, (June 2, 1857 - February 23, 1934) was an English composer, many of his works have entered the British and international classical concert repertoire. Among his best-known compositions are orchestral works including the Enigma Variations, the Pomp and Circumstance Marches, concertos for violin and cello, and two symphonies. He also composed choral works, including The Dream of Gerontius, chamber music and songs. He was appointed Master of the King's Musick in 1924.

Although Elgar is often regarded as a typically English composer, most of his musical influences were not from England but from continental Europe. These influences were Schumann, Brahms, Rubinstein, and Wagner. He felt himself to be an outsider, not only musically, but socially. In musical circles dominated by academics, he was a self-taught composer. Elgar has been described as the first composer to take the gramophone seriously. Between 1914 and 1925, he conducted a series of acoustic recordings of his works. The introduction of the microphone in 1925 made far more accurate sound reproduction possible, and Elgar made new recordings of most of his major orchestral works and excerpts from The Dream of Gerontius. These recordings were reissued on LP record in the 1970's and on CD in the 1990's. In his fifties, Elgar composed a symphony and a violin concerto that were immensely successful. His second symphony and his cello concerto did not gain immediate public popularity and took many years to achieve a regular place in the concert repertory of British orchestras. Elgar's music came, in his later years, to be seen as appealing chiefly to British audiences. His stock remained low for a generation after his death.

This 2-cd collection is a great introduction to Elgar's well-known orchestral works. The pieces are all marvelously performed with very good sound quality. I especially enjoy the Pomp & Circumstance marches - very exciting stuff when you crank up the volume.
