Winston-Salem Symphony: Enigma Variations

Robert Moody 150pxThe title of our featured concert is Enigma Variations, but the quality of the music you’ll hear during this edition of Carolina Live is quite clear and straightforward. It begins with Wagner’s stately Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg, moves to a distinctive Concerto for Two Cellos and Orchestra by contemporary composer David Ott, and ends with the work that provides the concert’s title—Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations. A diverse and interesting selection from the always-creative Robert Moody and the Winston-Salem Symphony.
