A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Elgar is today arguably the most popular British classical composer. During his lifetime, and since his death, Elgar's work has become closely associated with nostalgia of various forms. A controversial topic in contemporary Britain, nostalgia has been condemned as escapist, but here Riley offers a cautious defence of Elgarian nostalgia.

Critique:

Review of the hardback: '... a heavyweight and widely researched production, at its most distinguished when close descriptive musical analysis focuses ideas and sets off fascinating trains of thought.' Musical Times

Review of the hardback: 'It is built round various abstracts nouns, each applied to Elgar in turn.' The Times Literary Supplement

Review of the hardback: 'There is a particularly limpid and acute discussion of the relations between music and literature involved?' The Times Literary Supplement
