Joined once again by David Owen Norris – the presenter of our Sibelius Unwrapped launch concert last year – són guide the listener on a journey through one of music’s most touching and inspiring landscapes: Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations. Enjoy our fascinating unwrapping as we pull the music, its stories and its meaning apart in the first half, presenting all the signposts you could ever need for maximum enjoyment of the complete performance in the second half. David presents extracts at the keyboard and with full orchestra, immersing the listener in all 14 of Elgar’s musical portraits. A wonderful opportunity to enjoy a summer afternoon’s tea with Mr Elgar, only days after his 160th birthday.
són continue their Unwrapped series having already explored the music of Sibelius with David Owen Norris, and Beethoven’s mighty Eroica Symphony with John Suchet. Passionately committed to delving into great classical masterworks with all audiences, són are establishing their Unwrapped concerts as a central thread of every concert season.
