In 1905, the famed Austrian violinist Fritz Kreisler told the Hereford Times ?If you want to know whom I consider to be the greatest living composer, I say without hesitation, Elgar. I wish Elgar would write something for the violin. He could do so, and it would certainly be something effective.? Five years later Elgar delivered Kreisler a concerto by turns grand, brooding and heroic.
American composer Adolphus Hailstork?s Epitafio para un hombre que soñó is a solemn orchestral homage to the life of Martin Luther King, Jr. Inspired by the pastoral poetry of Adolf Btger, Schumann?s First Symphony brims with spirited melodies and fanfares to depict ?Spring?s Awakening?.
