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 on Mozart's imaginative Violin Concerto No. 5. Concertmaster Jun Iwasaki joins Zuckerman on 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.
This concert is part of Violins of Hope Nashville, a community-wide initiative highlighting a collection of restored violins played by Jews during the Holocaust. Prior to the performance on Thursday, April 12, the Schermerhorn will host a Yom HaShoah service at 4 pm.
Come early and learn more about the music at our Classical Conversations with Maestro Giancarlo Guerrero, taking place one hour before the concert in the Balcony Lobby.
Following the concert, Maestro Guerrero will lead an informal Q&A at the back of the concert hall, on the Orchestra Level.
