As a composer, the Briton Edward Elgar was self-taught – but what a composer! His "Pomp and Circumstance Marches" were a hit; in the Enigma Variations he portrayed some of his friends in a way that was as original as it was successful; and his Violin Concerto also occupies a special place in the repertoire. It is probably the longest instrumental concerto in music history, and it contains everything that must excite a performer like Frank Peter Zimmermann. Last but not least, and typically Elgar, there are a few enigmatic hints that have left musicologists scratching their heads to this day.
