String Quartet Edward Elgar
In 1917, Elgar was ill and depressed by war-time London. He began work on the String Quartet in March 1918, while recovering at home. He finished only the first subject of the first movement at that time. In May, Lady Elgar found a cottage surrounded by woods in Sussex, in which he could work in seclusion away from the cares of the world. Here he composed his Violin Sonata, Piano Quintet and, by December, the String Quartet. There are three movements.
