ELGAR Variations on an Original Theme “Enigma”

It’s a harmonic convergence of distinguished women in music. DSO favorite Anne-Marie McDermott joins with Estonian conductor Anu Tali for Amy Beach’s Piano Concerto and Alisson Kruusmaa’s ethereal Arabesques. Elgar’s crowning achievement, Enigma Variations, hides an unsolved mystery that has puzzled music sleuths for more than a century: what is that Original Theme? No one has ever discovered it. But we do know that he’s portraying 14 friends, disguised in irresistible tunes and “inside jokes,” with the soaring heart of the work — the stirring “Nimrod” Variation — paying tribute to a beloved friend.
