Rare film of Elgar talking and then conducting the trio of his Pomp and Circumstance March no.1 at the opening of EMI's Abbey Road studios in London on 12 November 1931.

Elgar's words to the orchestra before he begins conducting are as follows: "Morning, gentlemen. Glad to see you all. Very light programme this morning. Please play this tune as though you've never heard it before."
"Io non odio persona al mondo, ma vi sono cert'uomini ch'io ho bisogno di vedere soltanto da lontano".
Ugo Foscolo - "Ultime lettere di Jacopo Ortis"
