Elgar’s Enigma Variations
Respighi’s Fountains of Rome whisks you off to Italy from the starting notes. Spritely lines in the winds and a thunderous feature for brass and percussion may sweep you straight out of your seat. Omaha favorite Joshua Roman returns to perform Walton’s lyrical yet brilliant Cello Concerto. Elgar used his Enigma Variations to portray his loved ones, ranging his movements from achingly beautiful to laugh-out-loud humorous. The power of transformation is on full display as each new “anonymous” tribute begins; those unfamiliar with Elgar will find his Nimrod variation gorgeously familiar.
