Elgar conducts Elgar.

What a beauty of FM life in Boston! The WHRB ran a week-long  (53 hours) Sir Edward Elgar Orgy and today, at the end of the programming they broadcasted a cycle of the Elgar’s own conducting of his own. What a grate dissent in time and into the mind of the great conductor. The quality of Sound was also very high. What a luck!!!

Re: Elgar conducts Elgar.
Listened to as much as I could. We in Boston are lucky people indeed, to have such programming.
