Au contraire, lors du symposium de The Musical Times de 1957 pour le centenaire de la naissance d'Elgar, organisé par Vaughan Williams, plusieurs participants partagent le point de vue de Eric Blom que Falstaff est la plus grande œuvre d'Elgar [144]. Il accepte le poste à contrecœur, pensant qu'un compositeur ne doit pas diriger une école de musique [56], ce qui le met mal à l'aise dans ce rôle [57]; ses cours créent des controverses avec ses attaques contre les critiques [58] [n 13] et contre la musique anglaise en général : « La vulgarité va souvent de pair avec le manque de créativité… mais l'esprit banal ne pourra jamais être que banal.

During the 1890s Elgar gradually built up a reputation as a composer, chiefly of works for the great choral festivals of the Midlands. Dozens of concerts, art exhibitions, circus and comedy shows will begin in early December. The number of people is not nearly as important as the number of times running through. They sit there like a lot of stuffed pigs." [69] The work was, by normal standards, a success, with twenty-seven performances within three years of its premiere, but it did not achieve the international furore of the First Symphony. [70] In June 1911, as part of the celebrations surrounding the coronation of King George V, Elgar was appointed to the Order of Merit, [71] an honour limited to twenty-four holders at any time.
