Salut d'Amour [Flute and Piano], Op12
From the Publisher
Elgar's delightful Salut d'Amour, one of his earliest successes, dates from 1889, when Elgar had just turned 30: this proved to be a year of great happiness for him, for at that time he married Caroline Alice Roberts - a lady who was to mean so much to him as man and musician. It is not too fanciful to hear, in this charming piece, a musical manifestation of his love for her. This arrangement for flute and piano retains al the beauty of the original.
