Salut d'amour, Op 12
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
In 1888 Edward Elgar composed a short piece originally called Liebesgruß (‘Love’s greeting’), to which he added a dedication ‘à Carice’—a contraction of the Christian names of his then fiancée Caroline Alice Roberts and also the name the couple later gave to their only daughter. The piece was published by Schott the following year, in versions for violin and piano, piano solo, cello and piano, and for small orchestra. Schott soon changed the title to Salut d’amour, with ‘Liebesgruß’ as a subtitle, whereupon it became one of the composer’s most popular, and most widely arranged, works.
