Diana McVeagh is one of the foremost authors of books and articles about Sir Edward Elgar. Her first book “Edward Elgar: His Life and Music” was published in 1955, and her second, “Elgar the Music Maker” in 2007. Her biographical writing and analysis of the music is the result of much research. She also wrote the entry on Elgar for the “New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians”. Diana’s books are both clear and informative and provide essential reading for all those who wish to learn more about the life and music of one of England’s greatest composers. Diana will talk about her experiences as a writer and music scholar.
