Berlioz | Le carnaval romain Overture, Op. 9 
Schumann | Cello Concerto in A minor, Op. 129, Steven Isserlis, cello 
Elgar | Variations on an Original Theme, Op. 36, “Enigma” 

Masterworks IV, “Portraits,” brings to life beautiful orchestral music as painted by three important composers, all genius musical artists.  

Berlioz paints the story of two lovers at a Roman street fair. Elgar’s mastery of instrumentation, tone, and structure brings forward the personality and character of his subjects in each portrait of “Variations on an Original Theme;” finally, the Schumann Cello Concerto’s transcendental qualities bring us far away from present circumstances.   

Steven Isserlis, cellist, joins the ASO for this transformative evening of music. Acclaimed worldwide for his profound musicianship and technical mastery, Isserlis enjoys a unique and distinguished career as a soloist, chamber musician, educator, author, and broadcaster.
