Chan Conducts The Enigma Variations
Fung Lam Endless Forms Scottish premiere
Sibelius Violin Concerto
Elgar Enigma Variations
Impatient pianists, practical jokers, and an overenthusiastic bulldog. Elgar dedicated his Enigma Variations to ‘my friends pictured within’, and if all you know of them is Nimrod, you’re about to meet some of the most loveable characters in British music. It’s a joyous finale to a musical journey that begins inside the fantastic imagination of Hong Kong-born Fung Lam, and finds violinist Benjamin Beilman deep in the Finnish forests of Sibelius’ hugely popular Violin Concerto.
