ELGAR
Enigma Variations

SHOSTAKOVICH
Symphony No. 10

Expect the unexpected when British conductor Mark Wigglesworth takes the Orchestra Hall podium. His interpretations peel away layers of "tradition" from beloved classics like Elgar's Enigma Variations—and you'll hear it afresh, as if the ink is barely dry on the manuscript. Riveting works like Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10 are another Wigglesworth specialty. This courageous orchestral cry rang out shortly after Stalin's death in 1953. With Wigglesworth and the Orchestra, it will be unforgettable.
