With Christopher Hogwood's new edition of Elgar's much loved Serenade, a scholarly-critical edition of the work is now available for the first time. As with other Elgar works, modern editions of the Serenade have always suffered from an enormous number of inconsistancies between the score and parts and unclear divisi and unison passages. The editor has clarified these discrepancies, drawing on Elgar's version of the work for piano four hands (the original version) and the recently discovered autograph manuscript of the first movement. The edition also contains a facsimile showing the original ending of the third movement as well as an informative foreword (Ger/Eng) and a critical commentary (Eng).

- The first scholarly-critical Urtext edition of this popular work for string orchestra
- Foreword (Ger/Eng) and critical commentary (Eng)
- With facsimile pages
