A Musical Tour de Force
Conductor Johannes Fritzsch
Soloist Joseph Nolan, organ
It can sometimes be dangerous to be friends with a composer! In 1899, English composer Edward Elgar created his Enigma Variations, a set of variations on the one melody, with each one representing a different friend of his. From his wife to his music publisher, each friend was immortalised in music as their different personalities shone through. This piece has never lost popularity, especially with the moving and powerful ‘Nimrod’ variation. We’re also delighted to showcase the majestic QPAC organ and soloist Joseph Nolan, in Poulenc’s mighty Concerto.
