2017 Opening Concert: Enigma

ANAM 2017 is out of the blocks with four great orchestral works by four major English composers. Britten’s impassioned cry from the heart juxtaposes powerfully with Vaughan Williams’ and Ades’ fantasies on the music of two earlier masters and Elgar’s ever-popular variations. To lead the ANAM Orchestra we welcome back the recently appointed Principal Conductor of the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Nicholas Carter. Carter is the youngest conductor – and only the fourth Australian ever – to be appointed Principal Conductor of a major Australian orchestra.

ADES Three Studies from Couperin
BRITTEN Sinfonia da Requiem
VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis
ELGAR Variations on an Original Theme op. 36 Enigma
