10. Letter from Elgar to the Royal Philharmonic Society
October 1897. In this letter, Elgar humorously asks whether the Society have come across him as a composer and whether a work of his could be performed in the Society's concerts. Following, the Society formed a good relationship with the composer and commissioned his Cockaigne Overture.
