On November 6th 1929, at the Small Queen's Hall, London, Edward Elgar recorded five short improvisations at the piano. He used the piano extensively when composing, and the recordings present a fascinating insight into the composer's genius, referencing his work on the never-completed piano concerto and other themes in five remarkably cohesive and memorable pieces. Although these recordings were eventually released in 1975, there has not, until now, been a printed transcription of this music available. In this edition, Iain Farrington has skilfully transcribed Elgar's playing to reconstruct the five pieces, making a significant addition to the Elgar piano repertoire.
