Review of the hardback: 'This very remarkable book will, I hope, be the beginning of a reassessment of Elgar and his position in the history of European music.' International Record Review Review of the hardback: '...advances the discipline of Elgar studies in a significant way. ... Edward Elgar, Modernist is an important publication and has many things to offer the reader who has an intelligent, enquiring mind.' Musical Times
