Mendelssohn – Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage
Chopin – Piano Concerto No. 1
Elgar – Enigma Variations
A musical mystery that has not been solved for more than a century is the theme that opens the celebrated Enigma Variations by the British composer known for his grand, yet intimate, style. Each one of the 13 variations paint a portrait of his closest friends. Perhaps one of the solutions of Elgar’s enigmas could be heard in Mendelssohn’s sea-inspired overture that opens the program. Chopin’s Piano Concerto offers great quantities of beautiful writing for the piano.
Lunch at Union Café after the concert with $5.00 off everyone’s lunch.
