Elgar, Violin Concerto 

Elgar, Enigma Variations

Violin: Nicola Benedetti 
Conductor: Jason Thornton

Elgar’s music is imbued with the Worcestershire countryside in which he was born. He also brilliantly captures and distils the individual character of his friends, family and community that surrounded him and sometimes provides his music with a hidden insightful narrative to his own secretive personal life.

In Engima Variations, Elgar paints a series of playful and insightful miniatures, in addition to the mysterious ‘Enigma’ theme and ‘Nimrod’. His Violin Concerto is purposefully more enigmatic and calculating, alluding to a portrayal of the women who fashioned his private life.

After her spellbinding performance of Shostakovich’s First Violin Concerto with Bath Philharmoina last season we welcome back Nicola Benedetti for her debut performance of this ‘Everest’ of the concerto repertoire.
