Synopsis:
Made at the time where much that is now known about Elgar had yet to be published, Russell's film is remarkable for its sensitive portrait of the rise of a young musician from a relatively poor background to international fame. The film was also groundbreaking, in that for the first time the BBC relaxed its taboo on using actors in factual films, although Russell was only allowed to use actors in factual films, although Russell was only allowed to use actors if they appeared in long shot and spoke no dialogue. As Russell's tribute to music he loved, the film is evocative, visually superb and true to the elegiac nobility of Elgar's music.
