Sir Edward William Elgar, 1st Baronet OM GCVO was an English composer, many of whose works have entered the British and international classical concert repertoire. His work reflected the features of romanticism.


Among  his best-known  compositions are orchestral works including the "Enigma Variations", the "Pomp and Circumstance Marches", the "Dream of Gerontius", concertos for violin and cello, two symphonies, chamber music and songs. Elgar is credited with having revived the English compositional tradition.
Not since the time of Purcell had an English composer achieved the notoriety that Elgar had. He was appointed Master of the King’s Music in 1924.


Elgar is esteemed both for his own music and for his role in heralding the 20th-century English musical renascence. His compositions are performed by musicians at concerts in many theaters, philharmonic halls, concert halls in Russia, Great Britain and many other countries.
