  • La Nursery Suite est une des dernières compositions d'Edward Elgar. Comme la suite The Wand of Youth, cette suite utilise des scènes de l'enfance d'Elgar.La suite est en cinq mouvements avec une coda. Elle dure environ 25 minutes. 1. Aubade (Awake)2. The Serious Doll3. Busy-ness4. The Sad Doll5. The Waggon (Passes)6. The Merry Doll7. Dreaming – Envoy (Coda)Elgar mentionne en septembre 1930 à William Laundon Streeton à HMV (Gramophone Company) qu'il a retrouvé dernièrement une boîte d'esquisses musicales de son enfance. Streeton suggère que, en tant que Master of the King's Musick, il pourrait en faire une œuvre pour marquer la naissance récente de la Princesse Margaret Rose (alors quatrième dans l'ordre de succession). La suite est dédiée à la Princesse Margaret, à sa sœur aînée la Princesse Élisabeth (future Reine Élisabeth II) et à leur mère la Duchesse d'York).La plupart des mouvements sont légers, dans le style de The Wand of Youth, d'un caractère principalement ensoleillé. Certains critiques font une exception de The Waggon (Passes) : l'autorité sur Elgar, Michael Kennedy, suggère qu'alors que le wagon gronde vers nous la musique devient plus sinistre à la manière du Scherzo de la Seconde Symphonie, quand, selon les mots d'Elgar, « les roues tournent dessus de ma tête ».La Nursery Suite est une des premières pièces orchestrales à avoir été créée dans un studio d'enregistrement (Kingsway Hall (en), Londres) plutôt que dans une salle de concert. Lors de la première le 23 mai 1931, seuls les deux derniers mouvements ne sont pas enregistrés sous la baguette du compositeur. Les deux derniers mouvements sont ajoutés à la suite le 4 juin 1931 devant une audience invitée comprenant la Princesse Élisabeth, quatre ans, et ses parents.Le chorégraphe Frederick Ashton utilise la The Nursery Suite pour un ballet en 1986 pour le gala pour le soixantième anniversaire de la Reine au Royal Opera House.
  • The Nursery Suite is one of the last compositions by Edward Elgar. Like Elgar's The Wand of Youth suites, it makes use of sketches from the composer's childhood.There are seven movements and a coda:1. Aubade (Awake)2. The Serious Doll3. Busy-ness4. The Sad Doll5. The Waggon (Passes)6. The Merry Doll7. Dreaming – Envoy (Coda)The composition of the Nursery Suite came about when Elgar mentioned in September 1930 to William Laundon Streeton of HMV (the Gramophone Company) that he had lately run across a box of musical sketches from the days of his youth. Streeton suggested that, as Master of the King's Musick, he might suitably draw on them for a work to mark the recent birth of Princess Margaret Rose (then fourth in line to the throne). The suite was dedicated to Princess Margaret, her older sister Princess Elizabeth (the future Queen Elizabeth II) and their mother (the Duchess of York).Most of the movements appear light, in the style of The Wand of Youth suites, and predominantly sunny in character. Some commentators have made an exception of "The Waggon (Passes)": the Elgar authority Michael Kennedy suggests that as the wagon (Elgar used the older spelling, 'waggon') rumbles towards us the music becomes sinister in a manner reminiscent of the bars in the Scherzo of the Second Symphony, when, in Elgar's words, "the wheels go over my head". Anthony Payne drew on the form of this movement for the ending of his elaboration of the Third Symphony sketches.The Nursery Suite was one of the first pieces of orchestral music to receive its premiere in a recording studio (Kingsway Hall, London) rather than a concert hall (although Elgar's very first recording session, in February 1914, had included the premiere of the miniature "Carissima"). At its premiere on 23 May 1931, all but the two last movements were recorded under the baton of the composer. The last two movements were added when the whole suite was performed on 4 June 1931 before an invited audience including Princess Elizabeth, aged four, and her parents. The piece takes about 25 minutes to perform.Reviewing the work when it first appeared, W.R. Anderson wrote in The Gramophone: "The last movement, with its striking violin cadenza, seems especially significant. It hints at memories, which even in music are best hinted at, not explicitly stated: not because they hurt, but because youth can only understand them so. … There is the old fire here, with at least two movements out of the other six showing a freshness distinct from that of the Wand of Youth … with the natural greatness of heart and spirit – something more than any genius can confer – that marks, and has marked through all his life, our beloved Edward Elgar."The ballet "Nursery Suite", with Elgar's music, choreography by Ninette de Valois and scenery and costumes by Nancy Allen, was first performed by the Vic-Wells Ballet (now Royal Ballet) on 19 March 1932 at the Sadler's Wells Theatre. The cast included Anton Dolin, Alicia Markova and Joy Newton.The choreographer Frederick Ashton used The Nursery Suite for a new ballet (his last) in 1986 for the Queen's sixtieth birthday gala at the Royal Opera House.
