Melancholy and virtuosity: Britannia rules

Edward Elgar’s music sounds much like his personality: warm, extrovert, brilliant, deeply introspective and melancholic. His 1919 Cello Concerto resounds with the horror and suffering of World War I. This gives it a certain sombreness, but the cello also gets every opportunity to sing, in dramatic monologues and moments of virtuosity. That virtuosity is also apparent in the mysterious Enigma Variations, which also delight because of their Wagnerian pathos and lyricism.
