Elgar's pianistic iconoclasm

Norris, David Owen (2007) Elgar's pianistic iconoclasm

Record type: Music Item


The researcher plays a number of examples showing particular features of Elgar’s piano notation. He explains that the way Elgar’s pianism developed means that these particularities can be easily misunderstood by conventionally-trained pianists. He suggests that Elgar’s pianism foreshadows Stravinsky’s habits of piano-writing, and that Elgar’s pianistic iconoclasm made him a modernist.
