Sir Mark Elder conducts Elgar’s touching musical tribute to his wife and friends, Enigma Variations, as well as the highly attractive overture Berlioz composed following Walter Scott’s legend of ‘The Scottish Robin Hood’, Rob Roy. The second half of this concert celebrates the works of Richard Wagner, with the overture and Liebstod from his Opera Tristan and Isolde, which has been described as ‘the beginning of modern music’, and the suite based on his great comedy, Die Meistersinger.
