Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20

Artists

Nikolaj Znaider, conductor

Saleem Ashkar, piano

Program

Mozart , Piano Concerto No. 20

Elgar , Symphony No. 2


Edward Elgar’s enigmatic nature fuels speculation as to the true inspiration for his Symphony No. 2. Publicly, he dedicated the work to King Edward VII, but personal comments hint that his true muse was a close friend rumored to be a romantic partner. Still, different inscriptions in the music simultaneously point to his time in Venice, poetry, and even his favorite flower.

ConcerTalk 1/26 at 7 PM, 1/27 at 7 PM: Get the most out of each Classical concert with informal presentations in Orchestra Hall one hour before the performance begins. Enjoy special guests, lectures, or performances that illuminate the program and provide a behind-the-scenes look at the art of making music! In this iteration, Conductor Yaniv Segal will speak about the program.

Join the DSO and Assistant Conductor Michelle Merrill for this season's webcasts of the Educational Concert Series (ECS). ECS introduces schoolchildren to classical music with thematic concerts and accompanying teacher resource tools available to those who register to watch.
