Edwin Conducts Barber & Elgar
Edwin Outwater, conductor
Oliver Herbert, cello
Caroline Shaw: Entr’acte
Barber: Cello Concerto in A minor
Elgar: Enigma Variations
Music Director Laureate Edwin Outwater returns to the KWS for a program from both sides of the Atlantic featuring contemporary young American composer Caroline Shaw, and American cellist Oliver Herbert performing Barber’s Cello Concerto, rarely performed due to its extreme technical demands. English composer Elgar’s Enigma Variations is widely believed to involve a hidden melody and has generated much speculation that has never been conclusively answered.
