Salut d’Amour is a charming piece of Victorian salon music. Written as a musical love letter to his once student Caroline Alice Roberts on the eve of their engagement, the piece is graced by Elgar’s melodic flair. Along with the other early work in this collection Chanson de nuit its success contributed to the gradual establishment of Elgar’s reputation as a composer. The Nursery Suite, was based on a number of early compositions which Elgar, by then Master of the King’s
Musick, had rediscovered in 1930 not long after the birth of the Duke and Duchess of York’s second daughter, Princess Margaret Rose. Dedicated to the royal family the work’s eight movements feature expert embellishments of childhood material, skillful melodic writing a nd characterful use of solo instruments, evoking feelings of nostalgia with a real charm.
