The Elgar Cello Concerto

The Breughelian peasant's dance of the final movement is Elgar putting a brave face on things. He knows he hasn't found an answer to the "to be or not to be" of the first movement-  no upbeat theme to match its beauty-  so this will have to do. Life goes on. Enter Yorick in all his remembered glory. Clomp, clomp, clomp, clomp.
