Edward Elgar: Dream Of Gerontius - Analytical Notes
In 1897, Elgar became acquainted with A J Jaeger, an employee of Novello publishing firm, who offered encouragement during the less successful time of the composers life before the publication of the Enigma Variations. Over time, Jaeger became Elga closest friend. Jaeger wrote this analysis in 1900. While the language and certain references may be extravagant for today reader, the insights Jaeger offers make this an invaluable accompaniment to Gerontius.
