The Serenade was first privately performed by the Worcester Ladies’ Orchestral Class, a group Elgar was involved in training, but had to wait a further three years for a first complete public performance, in Antwerp, 1896. Ever close to his heart, it was one of the final works Elgar recorded for the gramophone in 1933, the year before his death.
