$14 - $20*
$24 - $33
How does a master composer pay the ultimate tribute to those closest to him? Compose them a masterpiece, of course. And Edward Elgar's Enigma Variations is that: a complex, mysterious work that has fascinated listeners since its premiere in 1899. Elgar composed each of the variations to represent the personality of one of his friends, his wife, and even himself. But the key to the work is a tune that is never heard in the piece. Elgar hinted that it's a very famous melody to which his own theme is a counterpoint. Many have speculated, but it's a riddle that has never been solved. Now, Matthias Pintscher will lead the orchestra in this cinematic work under the stars at the Hollywood Bowl. Close your eyes and picture Elgar's friends coming alive while you try to solve the Enigma.
