Elgar’s Enigma 80th Anniversary Celebration
Welcome back to Belding Theater in celebration of the HSO’s 80th season! The HSO Brass Quintet is brilliantly featured on two captivating works by active, American composers Gerard Schwarz and Daniel McCarthy. We still don’t know why Franz Schubert never finished his Symphony, D. 759, creating one of music’s greatest unanswered questions. Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations is a work dedicated to the composer’s friends, with each variation a musical sketch meant to represent one of them. However, there are two “enigmas” to be solved: one variation’s subject is undisclosed, and Elgar himself referenced a hidden musical motive. Gather among friends and try to solve these musical mysteries.
