Playlists for March 5-9: Edward Elgar

There’s much more to Edward Elgar than graduation marches and the Enigma Variations. A composer of masterful symphonies, oratorios, chamber music and concertos, he led a renaissance in 20th century England that firmly reestablished the country’s musical identity.
