Chandos presents this comprehensive collection of Elgar’s piano music available on one disc at Classics price for the first time
This has been out of the catalogue for some time and makes a welcome return

Returning to the Chandos catalogue are the performances by Peter Pettinger of Elgar’s works for piano. The disc presents a comprehensive programme of Elgar’s piano music, including unpublished or very little known original pieces for the instrument, together with the composer’s own arrangements for piano of five orchestral pieces, including Dream Children and Carissima. Listening makes it clear that the works bear the hallmark of Elgar’s genius, whether on the small scale suitable for the salon, or on the larger one represented by works such as In Smyrna and the virtuosic Concert Allegro.

Pettinger performs the pieces in chronological order, which makes fascinating listening, showing the gradual development and maturing of Elgar’s characteristic style, and all are played with equal dedication and musicality, and a rare persuasiveness.

Pettinger has impeccable credentials on CD, having previously supported the violinist Nigel Kennedy in a recording of the Sonata for Violin and Piano, Op. 83, and his great sensitivity and technical accomplishment are evident throughout.

These fine pieces are expertly done by Peter Pettinger… full marks to Chandos…
Gramophone

Reviews of the original release:
A record which should be an essential part of the record collection of every real Elgar enthusiast.
Elgar Society Journal

Pettinger’s is the recording of choice, especially now that it has been released at midprice.
Fanfare (USA)

Indeed, the whole disc is a delight. Pettinger judges all his tempos finely and captures both Elgarian nostalgia and his noble climaxes – short-lived but powerful nonetheless… I heartily recommend this reissue.
