Schumann & Elgar's Enigma
Streaming: Saturday, March 16, at 7:45pm EDT
Pianist Inon Barnatan brings “uncommon sensitivity” ("The New Yorker") to everything he plays, including Schumann’s only piano concerto, a work inspired and premiered by the composer’s wife, Clara. Elgar’s "Enigma" Variations is a series of heartfelt impressions of dear friends, each movement as breathtaking as the last. The program begins with William Walton’s exhilarating musical escapade.
