For His 150th, Scholars Take A Fresh Look At Elgar
Marking the 150th anniversary of British composer Edward Elgar's birth "are many broadcasts, celebrations, major publications. But exactly what Elgar stood for and what is unique about his music are more than ever being questioned. ... Old assumptions are being challenged, clich├ęs rejected. And in a welcome development, the major festival is in America, which Elgar visited several times to conduct his music." The New York Times 08/05/07
