Music Program:

Berlioz Le carnaval romain Overture, Op. 9

Schumann Cello Concerto in A minor, Op. 129

Steven Isserlis, cello

Elgar Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 36, “Enigma”

This program brings to life beautiful orchestral music as painted by three important composers, all genius musical artists. Berlioz paints the story of two lovers at a Roman street fair; Elgar sketches special moments in the lives of his family and friends. Masterfully using instrumentation, tone, and structure, Elgar brings forward the personality and character of his subjects in each portrait; finally, The Schumann Cello Concerto’s transcendental qualities bring us far away from present circumstances.  Steve Isserlis, cellist, joins the ASO for this transformative evening of music. Acclaimed worldwide for his profound musicianship and technical mastery, British cellist Steven Isserlis enjoys a unique and distinguished career as a soloist, chamber musician, educator, author, and broadcaster.

*Student tickets are available for $10! Call the box office to purchase.
