This is the first of three volumes of musical criticisms by Bernard Shaw reflecting his great breadth of knowledge of the works of Wagner, Bach and Mozart to more contemporary British composers such as Walton, Tippett and Britten. Shaw's comments are notable for their insight, wit and lively intelligence. When Elgar appeard on the scene he said, "British music has taken a decisive step forward". His unusual breadth of knowledge is also remarkable, being equally at home discussing barrel-organs or the Bayreuth Festival, Salvation Army Bands or Italian opera.
