    Default Elgar Music

    I am trying to trace a piece of music which I believe is by Elgar.

    The Music was played on the film Young Winston the life of Winston Churchill in hes younger days There is a scene where the british cavalry is marching to battle and this particular music is played, the same music was also used in an old TV series called the Regiment

    I think it may have an india connection?, any ideas I will be very greatful

    March of the Mughal Emperor? (If I remember the name correctly) I think I've heard it once... Google doesn't show many hits.

    EDIT: This march is part of an orchestral suite, The Crown of India.

    It's worth exploring other music by a composer you find you like and I'll suggest Elgar's "Enigma Variations" as a start. I'll bet that you know at least one of them already! A nice work - half an hour length - a short theme and 14 variations, all Elgarian but in the style that the dedicatees might have played the theme. Some superb orchestration and a powerful ending.

    Yes, I watched that on the telly where we were treated to continual pics of the contortions on Watkins' face. Nice performance, as you say.
