Edward Elgar
My idea is that there is music in the air, music all around us, the world is full of it and you simply take as much as you require.
Elgar quotes
The enigma I will not explain its "dark saying" must be left unguessed, and I warn you that the apparent connection between the variations and the theme is often of the slightest texture.
People who talk of the spread of music in England and the increasing love of it, rarely seem to know where the growth of the art is really strong and properly fostered: some day the press will awake to the fact, already known abroad and to some few of us in England, that the living centre of music in Great Britain is not London, but somewhere further North.

Elgar Edward quotes
To my friends pictured within.
Elgar Edward
I always said God was against art and I still believe it. Anything obscene or trivial is blessed in this world and has a reward I ask for no reward only to live & to hear my work.
Edward Elgar quotes
Play it like something you hear down by the river.
