One of the most beloved pieces in the modern violin repertoire, the Concerto in B Minor is among Edward Elgar's longest orchestral compositions and one of the last of his works to achieve and retain popular success. This practice and performance edition contains a piano reduction and a separate violin part. Famed violinist Fritz Kreisler pronounced Elgar the greatest living composer, placing him "on an equal footing with my idols, Beethoven and Brahms. He is of the same aristocratic family. His invention, his orchestration, his harmony, his grandeur—it is wonderful. I wish Elgar would write something for the violin." A commission from the Royal Philharmonic Society helped fulfill Kreisler's wish, and the violinist performed the Concerto in B Minor at its 1910 debut, with Elgar conducting the London Symphony Orchestra.
English composer Edward Elgar (1857–1934) was appointed Master of the King's Musick in 1924.
