Notes & Reviews:

During the years 1907 and 1908, Elgar put together from music of his early youth - much of it written for a family to play - two suites of seven and six numbers respectively, and dressed them in a resplendent orchestral setting. These Suites, The Wand of Youth, are complemented here by the charming, yet restrained seven-movement Nursery Suite, written as a tribute to the two children of the Duchess of York, and Dream Children, a passionate work which yearns for a simpler time.
