Here's a superb Elgar album that anyone can enjoy, perhaps even more fun than the other releases in the fine Elgar series recorded by the venerable Hallé Orchestra under Sir Mark Elder. The album contains familiar music in the form of the five Pomp and Circumstance Marches, which include the most famous of all (albeit only the last two minutes), the D major No. 1. It contains a genuine Elgar rarity, the tone poem Polonia, Op. 76, written in commemoration of the contributions of Polish troops in World War I. This patriotic work quotes Chopin and Polish folk music, and it's a potboiler of the best kind, held together by march rhythms and entirely infectious, as long as you don't ask too much of it. The Pomp and Circumstance Marches are ideal, enthusiastic but never overdone. The Sea Pictures, Op. 37, are orchestral songs (with texts by five different poets) that deliver exactly what the title promises; the voice of mezzo-soprano Alice Coote is somehow maritime in its smoky, gentle quality, but it's unusual, and you might try sampling one of these (perhaps the lovely "Where Corals Lie," track 4) to see whether it is to your personal taste. This is a release that may appeal even to those who think they don't like Elgar.

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.
