ADAMS Short Ride in a Fast Machine
PROKOFIEV Violin Concerto No. 1 in D Major, Op. 19
ELGAR Enigma Variations
This concert will begin with the wild sonic ride of
Adams’ motoric score and end with perhaps the greatest
of all English orchestral works—the Enigma Variations.
Elgar’s sensual homage to his circle of friends (14 friends
and a dog are represented) cemented the composer’s
reputation as a master craftsman. Between these two
works is Prokofiev’s first violin concerto, which captures
both the Romantic sensibility and sarcastic strands in the
composer’s inimitable style.
