The great English composer Edward Elgar wrote his much-loved Enigma Variations to depict “friends pictured within,” but the titular enigma is an unplayed “theme” that Elgar often hinted at but never revealed. This Beyond the Score® performance delves into the special personalities of those closest to Elgar in an acclaimed multi-media presentation created by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and brought to life by actors and live theatre. After intermission, the Des Moines Symphony performs the complete Enigma Variations, including the sublime “Nimrod” variation.
