Edward Elgar (2 June 1857 - 23 February 1934) was an English composer. He wrote a number of orchestral music, two symphonies, the cello concerto and Enigma Variations (Enigma variations) are the major works and the oratorio The Dream of Gerontius (text by John Henry Newman).
Elgar's best known work is the somewhat pompous sounding Pomp and Circumstance No. 1 with Land of Hope and Glory.
Elgar left a 3 Unfinished Symphony, which is now written and recorded.
Elgar be described, along with Vaughan Williams as the greatest English composer since Purcell.
Elgar is also one of my own favorite composers.
