Edward Elgar was self-taught as a composer, working first as an orchestral musician and as a violin teacher in Worcestershire * Gained experience as an arranger and composer, establishing a reputation in the Midlands with a series of oratorios * Following success of Enigma Variations in 1899 his music was performed in London and throughout Europe * Between 1900 and 1920 regarded internationally as the leading British composer * Influenced by Romantic composers such as Wagner, Brahms, Schumann, Liszt and Franck * Music explores expressive potential of chromatic harmony and virtuoso orchestration * Originality lay largely in adoption of continental techniques, but he became viewed as a musical symbol of 'Englishness' and the Empire * The confident, ebullient manner of his ceremonial music is contrasted with a deeper and poetic vein, demonstrating the often painful insecurities of his period, class and religion
