Notes & Reviews:

Your eyes have not deceived you. Indeed, this is a piano transcription of the Elgar First. Following its premiere, the demand for the Symphony was instantaneous. In the era before broadcasting and adequate orchestral recording, Novello, Elgar’s publishers, were inundated with requests for a piano reduction for home use. Who could best translate this fully orchestral work into keyboard terms? The choice fell upon Sigfrid Karg-Elert, 20 years Elgar’s junior because he was already noted for his transcriptions. Today, we may sympathize with Karg-Elert’s problems when confronted with Elgar’s Symphonies, but should marvel at his retention of their essential features in the resultant piano scores.
