Britten’s Interludes from Peter Grimes are not only a set of brilliantly realised tone portraits of the sea, but a subtle psychological primer on the deep questions posed in the opera itself. The Elégie is a prime example of Fauré’s ability to distil anguish into a short, but touchingly effective musical statement. The Variations on an Original Theme resulted from Elgar’s habit of unwinding after a day’s work by improvising at the piano. They contain some of the most charming and deeply felt music Elgar ever penned.
