Sample text

In other works, like the symphonies, Elgar is not always true to the superficial imperial ‘meaning’ of such passages, and for critical listeners willing to dirty themselves in the admittedly grotesque surface sentiments of some (extremely little) of Elgar’s music it will not be diYcult to discern a more subversive voice speaking from behind the imperial moustaches. And these were, in fact (speaking metaphorically), probably grown only under the influence of his wife. There is no space here to properly develop an argument to account for Elgar’s imperialism, but in a nutshell my view (which is explored more fully elsewhere, and has much in common with Bernard Porter’s) can be expressed in the following way.

But it is an unresponsive interpretation of Elgar’s music which irons out all the creases and claims the cloth is wholly imperial. In fact it is a bizarre interpretation which reaches that conclusion. Furthermore, many (though not all) of Elgar’s imperial moments are coloured by a flighty kind of ambiguity that it is not always possible to resolve, and which it would therefore be foolish to pronounce definitively upon.
