    The String Quartet was the first of three chamber works that he tackled in 1918 in the peaceful surroundings of Brinkwells, the country cottage that Lady Elgar had found for them in the depth of the Sussex countryside. Following the delivery of a piano to Brinkwells in mid-August of that year...

    I keep hearing: "Elgar would be more recognised had he been from conintental Europe". Without sounding horribly silly, it can not have been anything to do with the fact he was British can it? A few have said it, even a BBC interviewer. I'm not quite sure what they mean.

    Hi, I just wanted to tell you about a little project my folk/rock band have done. I'm a huge Elgar nut and am fascinated by his life.
