  1. Overture, from Das Liebesverbot - Richard Wagner
  2. Concerto for cello and orchestra in E minor Op 85 - Sir Edward Elgar
  3. Overture, from Parsifal - Richard Wagner
  4. Variations on an original theme, 'Enigma' Op 36 - Sir Edward Elgar

Highlighting the journey between the first and last works of great composers, the second concert in Orion Orchestra’s Alpha & Omega series features Wagner and Elgar.

Bursting with the youthful confidence which also characterises the brilliant Orion Orchestra, Elgar’s Enigma Variations is in stark contrast to the sense of melancholy and war-affected desolation of his Cello Concerto. In Wagner’s case, few transformations could be as extraordinary or profound as between the overture to one of his earliest operas and the Prelude to his final musical drama, Parsifal.

With cellist Jamie Walton as soloist in the Elgar concerto, this concert will be a very special evening.
