Elgar’s original piano version of Enigma Variations, predating the orchestral version by three months, is given a mostly convincing and stylish account by Garzón in this premiere recording, although the more expansive variations sound distinctly monochrome in this context. One for Elgar devotees. Stephen Haylett
