A mystery has perplexed and taunted music-lovers for over 120 years.
SIR EDWARD ELGAR always hinted that a well-known tune lay hidden at the heart of his Enigma Variations (1899).
What was the ‘Enigma’?
Over the years, various guesses have been made – some of them bizarre.
In this book, BEVIS HILLIER puts forward a totally new theory: that Elgar ‘encoded’ the tune of the old Welsh song ‘Men of Harlech’ in the Variations.
Advancing a series of powerful arguments, Hillier makes his case, not as a music academic, but in clear layman’s language and vivid prose.
It is a momentous discovery, a grand cultural revelation.says Bevis Hilllier
