The subject of Elgar's Third Symphony has long been a legitimate and indeed fascinating subject for journalistic and musical enquiry, and it is in this spirit that Anthony Payne will be exploring the subject in his Radio 3 documentary on 19 March as part of a major series of Elgar broadcasts in the network's season Fairest Isle.
There is no intention on the BBC's part to do anything other than represent the sketches exactly as Elgar's daughter bequested them to the Corporation, and indeed Anthony Payne has been in close touch with the Elgar family in planning this programme. The legal agreement will be fully respected.
