The Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra
It’s a perfect match–the power of the orchestra with the passion of the composers! Likened to Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, Finlandia by Sibelius is a work of musical patriotism with a luminous celebratory soul. Striking at the hearts of the audience, Amy Beach’s Piano Concerto is a veritable tour de force between piano and orchestra. Acclaimed pianist Randall Hodgkinson brings intensity and excellence to this turbulent, robust and riveting concerto. Edward Elgar’s uber-personal Enigma Variations manifests a mystery of the heart. Each variation of the theme, all fourteen, refers to someone or something in the composer’s life – including a friend’s bulldog. Using initials, nicknames and personal characteristics, the music unravels hints of each identity, conveying a string of varied emotions. This circle of friends yields an array of meaningful musical reflections: beautiful and playful, yet serious and thoughtful.
