Chabrier - España
Corigliano - Concerto for Violin and Orchestra “Red Violin”
Elgar - Enigma Variations

In his Red Violin Concerto, composer John Corigliano adapted his music for the hit film into a concert piece that captures all the passion and drama of his original score. With moments of unabashed romanticism and sparkling energy, along with plenty of virtuoso fireworks, the concerto is a signature piece for Finnish violinist Elina Vähälä. Elgar’s Enigma Variations paints evocative portraits of the composer’s closest circle of friends, but with a tantalizing mystery at the heart of the music. And Chabrier’s España is a Frenchman’s take on the vivacious sounds of his neighboring Spain, with music that builds to a feverish pitch of excitement.
