Happy Birthday, Edward Elgar! The English composer was born 155 years ago today. One of his most notable pieces is his Cello Concerto in E Minor, Op. 85, a dark, contemplative, post-World War 1 composition. One of the most famous recordings of this piece is by our favorite cellist, Jaqueline Du Pré. Spend a few minutes today in Elgar’s honor watching Jaqueline play with the London Philharmonic in 1967!
