“It’s ghostly stuff.” Even Edward Elgar himself knew there was something special about his Piano Quintet - a haunted, urgent masterpiece written in the dying days of the First World War. This is an Elgar that the public rarely saw, but here in Birmingham we’ve always known that he was more than just Pomp and Circumstance, and we couldn’t celebrate the CBSO’s Centenary without him.
