Elgar and Mahler, different routes to mastery

Edward Elgar and Gustav Mahler had different educational opportunities, career paths and conceptions of what a symphony could be. Yet, as a concert conductor Mahler developed his notions of programme building and repertoire until, in his final years in New York, he gave four performances of music by Elgar.
