Elgar: Marches



If not necessarily the most important of his orchestral works, Elgar’s marches represent music of profounder achievement, by no means jingoistic or merely brash in conception. The ever-popular Pomp and Circumstance Marches demonstrate a consummate command of orchestration, with the March No. 1 in D major, in Elgar’s own words “a tune that will knock ’em flat,” justifiably famous as the melody for Land of Hope and Glory.
