Rhythmic Showpieces. Lush Melodies.

 Brazilian conductor Jorge Sarmientos conducts sparkling gems from his homeland. Impress your friends as you casually drop the names of these Brazilian composers while raving about this program.

Then…with a name like “Enigma”, how can you not be intrigued? Are Elgar’s Engima Variations about  portraits of his friends, a mysterious theme or just lush romantic music that will warm you up on a cold November day?
