Born 2 June 1857: Edward Elgar

Edward Elgar, a towering figure in English music, was born on June 2nd, 1857 in the small village of Lower Broadheath, near Worcester, England. Immersed in music from a young age, his father owned a shop selling sheet music and instruments, and his mother was a keen amateur musician. Despite some early lessons, Elgar was largely self-taught as a composer, displaying a remarkable aptitude for music from a young age. This self-reliance and unique perspective would go on to shape his distinctive and enduring compositions.
