More Elgar, from Royal Albert Hall

Audio for this story from Performance Today is not available.

Elgar's "Enigma Variations" are a perennial favorite among the English. We're in concert at Royal Albert Hall in London where Richard Hickox leads the BBC National Orchestra of Wales. It's a PROMS concert, where any night of the week you can find 1,000 people standing down in front to listen to classical music.
