Concert Description

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.
