Zukerman, Barenboim
"Elgar Violin Concerto"

I was just having a conversation yesterday about the merits of Elgar as a composer. If you take away the 'Enigma' variations and 'Pomp & Circumtance' you're left with the cello concerto...and not much else that people actually know.

This concerto is beautiful, but made all the more beautiful by Zukerman's performance.
My opinion of Elgar's music hasn't changed much as a result of this recording.
