Variations on a Theme of Frank bridge
Noted for their “electric, spontaneous rapport” (Chicago
Tribune), the Australian Chamber Orchestra presents works
by Shostakovich, Prokofiev and britten. Shostakovich’s
propulsive First Piano Concerto bears his distinctive tongue-
in-cheek humor, including gallops, can-cans and comedic
quotations. Paying affectionate tribute to his composition
teacher, Frank bridge, britten’s variations each capture a
different facet of their close relationship—vitality, humor,
enthusiasm and warmth.

Symphony No. 2
[mArch 27-29 oNLY]
Once heard, the hauntingly beautiful cello melody in
Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony is never forgotten. Yet the
work’s ultimate power lies in its gaze into darkest despair
culminating in the serenely beautiful second movement. In
his Cello Concerto, played here by CSO Principal Cello John
Sharp, Edward Elgar gave sincere and heartfelt voice to his
grief, defiance and wistful nostalgia in the face of world war I.
