Synopsis by Nathan Southern
The hour-long feature Elgar's Tenth Muse: The Life of an English Composer hearkens back to early 20th century Great Britain. Within the framework of that time and place, the film dramatizes the affections that blossomed between English Romantic composer Edward Elgar (James Fox) and the tenth woman who functioned as his muse, his depthless well of creative inspiration - the lithe and sensual young Hungarian violinist called Jelly d'Aranyi (Faith Brook). Selma Alispahic and Rupert Frazer co-star; the film features classical performances by violinists Maxim Vengerov and Natalie Clein.
