  Sir Edward Elgar Complete songs for voice and piano, vol. 1 & vol. 2
Available at CHANNEL CLASSICS RECORDS

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the birth of Sir Edward Elgar (1857-1934), a recording of the great British composer’s Complete Songs is being produced by Channel Classics Records (www.channelclassics.com) in cooperation with the 20th Century Song Foundation.

The famous English soprano Amanda Roocroft and English baritone Konrad Jarnot, one of the most promising Lied singers of our time, perform Elgar’s well known cycle Sea Pictures (first CD recording by a male voice) as well as a number of unknown Elgar Songs, some of which have never been recorded before. The accompaniment is in the hands of the initiator of this project, the Dutch pianist Reinild Mees.
