Elgar – Chanson de nuit
Elgar – Enigma Variations
Nashville Symphony | Pinchas Zukerman, conductor/violin | Jun Iwasaki, violin
Legendary violinist Pinchas Zukerman makes his first Nashville appearance in two decades to conduct the Nashville Symphony, and he'll step forward as soloist to perform Mozart's imaginative Violin Concerto No. 5. Concertmaster Jun Iwasaki joins Zukerman to perform Bach's Concerto for Two Violins, a work overflowing with enchanting musical interplay. Rounding out the evening are three incomparable works by Edward Elgar: his Chansons are intimately crafted portraits of night and day, and the vivid character sketches of Enigma Variations remain among the composer's most enduring work.
Come early and learn more about the music at our Classical Conversations, taking place one hour before the concert in the Balcony Lobby.
Following the concert, guest violinist and conductor Pinchas Zukerman will lead an informal Q&A at the back of the concert hall, on the Orchestra Level.
