Edward Elgar was born at Lower Broadheath, on 2nd June 1857, within sight of the Malvern Hills and the tower of Worcester Cathedral, features that meant much to him throughout his creative life. In boyhood, he showed a precocious gift for keyboard improvisation; later, he became a competent organist, an outstanding violinist and a conductor of nervous energy and much flexibility, proving notably successful in recordings of his own music.
