Minnesota Orchestra

This week's Minnesota Orchestra program features the return of British conductor Mark Wigglesworth, leading Elgar's Enigma Variations and Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony. The Enigma Variations portrays the composer and his circle of close acquaintances. It is heard in a unique version with actor Gary Briggle portraying Elgar and delivering brief spoken narrations drawn from the composer's writings. Shostakovich's Tenth Symphony was a protest against the composer's tormentor Stalin and a statement of triumph upon his death in 1953. William Randall Beard
