Elgar’s First Symphony was a personal triumph for the composer, who said ‘I hold that the symphony without a programme is the highest development of art.’ Wonderfully scored, opulent and highly personal, it was the culmination of many years of creative struggle with the symphonic form. ‘… almost terrifying in its greatness,’ commented one dignitary at the premiere in 1908; ‘the greatest symphony of modern times, by the greatest modern composer,’ said conductor Hans Richter.
