Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations is a playful nod to his circle of friends and family. After Elgar’s wife said, “I like that tune,” he composed 14 variations of a melody, each inspired by those closest to him, creating one of the greatest compositions of the 19th century. Most notable in the middle of this work is the famous Nimrod Variation. Award winning violinist Nikki Chooi joins the WSO for Jean Sibelius’ Concerto in D minor. Sibelius has a way of depicting the landscape of his native Finland in sound throughout all of his scores. This violin concerto sits at the pinnacle of his mastery.
