Description

Chanson de Matin (Morning Song), Op. 15, No. 2, was originally composed for violin and piano, and later orchestrated by the composer. Its first publication was in 1899, though it is thought that it was almost certainly written in 1889 or 1890.

The orchestral version of the work was published two years later, and first performed, together with Chanson de Nuit, at a Queen's Hall Promenade Concert conducted by Henry Wood on 14 September 1901.

Elgar briefly quotes the main melody in the second movement of his String Quartet in E minor of 1918.

This arrangement was commissioned by Black Dyke Band as part of the Arts Council Recovery Grant.
