Edmonton Symphony Orchestra: Elgar and Adams
November 30 @ 8:00 pm MST$32 – $92
The ESO bridges yesterday and today in a concert juxtaposing Elgar’s “Enigma” Variations with works for hip-hop and orchestra. With text by Algonquin-Québecois rapper Samian, Canadian composer Nicole Lizée’s La terre a des maux is a first for the ESO and is as exciting as it is ground-breaking. ESO Chief Conductor Alexander Prior completes the evening with a work that has inspired his creativity– John Adams’ Grand Pianola Music.
