Beyond the Score – Elgar: Enigma Variations
Each of these 14 variations is dedicated to one of Elgar’s dearest friends, but the titular enigma is an unplayed “theme” that Elgar often hinted at but never revealed. Many think that Elgar slipped a hidden melody into the music. Regardless, the WSO looks at the identities we do know aided by a multimedia presentation created by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Before the WSO finishes sanding its violins and plays the complete piece, actors Donna Fletcher, Tom Soares, and James Manishen help bring Elgar’s muses to life.
Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra
As early as 1880, the prairies of Winnipeg were filled with music. Orchestras, both amateur and semi-professional, unleashed their cultural impact on the city, with nearly 30 formed between the late 19th century and 1947. But they weren't content with their small scale, and in 1944, at least 20 smaller organizations joined forces to form the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, sharing talent, passion, and answers for their conductors pop quizzes. Within a decade, the CBC began broadcasting WSO concerts, and by 1990, the orchestra had more than 10,000 subscribers.
