BSO at Strathmore: Temirkanov and Gelber
Saturday, December 30, 1899 at 12:00 AM

Back to Calendar

Yuri Temirkanov, conductor
Bruno Leonardo Gelber, piano

Program
Mendessohn: The Hebrides
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 23, K. 488
Elgar: Enigma Variations

The program opens with Mendelssohn's loveliest overture, Hebrides or "Fingal's Cave": a marvelous taste of wind and sea spray that recalls a rather stormy voyage he took off Scotland's wild west coast. Elgar's extraordinary series of musical portraits of himself, his wife, and his friends with a mystery portrait believed to be of a lady he was platonically in love with. Pianist Bruno Leonardo Gelber will return to perform another of the greatest of Mozart's piano concertos, No. 23, with its beautiful and rather sad slow movement.

Encore at Strathmore
Skip the traffic and relax with Restaurant Associates after the concert featuring decadent desserts, cappucinos, lattes, and international coffees in the Lockheed Martin Lobby.
