Brahms' Haydn Variations come to mind, but don't emerge the winner. For those who may not know what the "Enigma" in the title refers to here, let me say it pertains to a second or counter-theme in the piece-a theme which is never heard. If it is unheard, you ask, how can it be in the work? Well, that's part of the enigma; but bear in mind that it may be musically implied somewhere. Elgar revealed his secret to three people, all of whom took it with them to the grave. Monteux, a Frenchman who was principal conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra from 1961 until his death in 1964, goes to the heart of this wonderful piece, capturing its British elegance, its sensual (and unVictorian) romance, its kinetic verve, and its buoyant color. Sir Adrian Boult and many others have made splendid recordings of this work, but Monteux's rendition can stand with the best.

You know, this is a very important album. These performances may well be second only to Boult. Troyte is all too brief but stunning. This is one great album. The sound from 1961 and 1958 is age-defying. The performances are difficult to beat.
