Sparkling and colourful, with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, conductor Cristian Macelaru and pianist Leif Ove Andsnes.
The Enigma Variations put composer Edward Elgar on the international musical map and is a key work in the history of classical music. One evening, Elgar had entertained his wife with musical caricatures of some of their friends, which soon developed into a number of orchestral variations.
Elgar said: ”This work commenced in a spirit of humour and continued in deep seriousness”. The 14 individuals described in the music include his wife, the publisher Jaeger and Elgar himself.
In this concert we also meet the Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, one of the world’s most acclaimed and popular soloists, in Debussy’s sparkling, masterful and colourful Fantaisie for piano and orchestra.
The evening begins with British composer Anna Clyne’s Abstractions, with music inspired by five abstract works of art.
