Classics by Elgar and Mendelssohn plus a magical British rediscovery, as Chineke! Orchestra makes its Birmingham debut.
Everyone loves Nimrod, but there’s more to Elgar’s Enigma Variations than just an unforgettable musical portrait gallery of his Worcestershire friends. Mendelssohn’s popular Violin Concerto and the passionate, unfairly-neglected Ballade by Elgar’s friend Samuel Coleridge-Taylor complete a wonderfully warm-hearted concert.
Coleridge-Taylor Ballade for Orchestra in A minor Op 33, 13’’
Mendelssohn Violin Concerto in E minor Op 64, 26’ ’
Elgar Enigma Variations, 29’’
Roderick Cox, Conductor
