“Something might be made of that tune”: Elgar’s Enigma Variations

The work that finally brought well-deserved fame to Edward Elgar is one of the glories of English symphonic literature, a series of intimate musical portraits of Elgar's friends and loved ones. Elsa Barraine, a powerful voice in French music, is represented by her Symphony No. 2 in its U.S. premiere. Alena Hove, winner of the Philharmonic's 2016 Don Bushell Competition, shines in Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Violin Concerto, a work based in part on Korngold's delectable music for films. Two short works by Holst and Delius round out this distinctive program.
