No, Jiri Belohlavek...so we'll be getting a Czech flavored Enigma  ;D

First half the program will be Beethoven's First Piano Concerto with Piotr Anderszewski.

Sarge

the phone rings and somebody says,
"hey, they made a movie about
Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."
                               --Charles Bukowski, "Mahler"

Well, Sarge, I hope he plays it with more focus for you, than he did when we heard him play this in Boston.

Beethoven 1st PC and Elgar's Enigma? Sounds like a snoozer...

Like I said, not the most imaginative programming (that's a continual plague in the Pro Arte series: it's designed for the most conservative and rich audiences, audiences that refuse to pay for and come to anything adventurous). The Enigma is an old friend, though, one I've never heard live. I'm looking forward to it actually.

Yes, I'd gladly take in a Variations on an Original Theme, Opus 36, in live performance, any day.

And this is the thread for people who enjoy those modest eddies of the Elgar catalogue without puffing them up as if they were (** WARNING :: FLAWED ARTS ANALOGY APPROACHING **) Fabergé eggs.

How very kitsch to use that at a graduation ceremony  :o

It would work, though, if you had captive slaves and caskets of ivory in advance of the valedictorian.

In my mind, Elgar embodies -- no, epitomizes -- the land of Hope and Glory ........

Separately . . . things about Elgar you never suspected:

. . . sandpapering your private parts will be less frustrating and perhaps even more pleasureable . . . .

Is it really separate? .......... or is it, in fact, part of some larger Elgarian matrix? ..........
