Maybe the Only Elgar Compilation You'll Ever Need.
Louie Bourland | Garden Grove CA | 12/07/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Naxos' "Very Best Of Elgar" compilation is probably the most comprehensive overview ever of Edward Elgar's best known work. For those who are unfamiliar with this great British composer, this double-CD set serves as a perfect introduction to his music. Two out of five of his famous "Pomp and Circumstance" marches are here as well as excerpts from his two symphonies, violin and cello concertos, the famous "Nimrod" movement from his "Enigma Variations" and the "Cockaigne Overture".
Also included in this set are lesser known works such as excerpts from his Violin Sonata, String Quartet, Piano Quintet and choral works (Ave verum corpus, The Apostles and The Dream of Gerontius).
Each disc features over 70 minutes of music and includes brief annotations about the music in the CD booklet.
With all this said, "The Very Best Of Elgar" is a very satisfying compilation and is very well put together.
Great Collection."
