Edward Elgar (1857 - 1934)

Elgar published the Chanson de Matin - and its partner, Chanson de Nuit - at the time of his life when he was also creating the Enigma Variations and The Dream of Gerontius. This work was originally created as a Violin and Piano duet, but Elgar then Orchestrated the work and it was presented at the Proms. Since then, other arrangements have been created. Although published in 1897, scholars suggest that these two works may have been written in the 1880's. The contrast of the two melodies which Elgar then intertwines yields a satisfying short work, especially with the composer's fine Orchestration.
