19. S: Serenade for Strings
All three movements of Elgar’s Serenade have something wonderful to offer British music. From the quirky opening movement, through the relaxing second, to the a skipping pastoral tune in the final ‘Allegretto’ section, it’s plain to see why Elgar retains his place as one of Britain’s greatest composers.
