Edward Elgar’s final significant composition is at the heart of this program, a cornucopia of orchestral colors and national textures. Rising young Romanian cellist Andrei Ioniţă performs Elgar’s by turns confident and darkly introspective masterpiece, a reflection of the composer’s extreme ambivalence about an England forever altered by war. The program is rounded out by a neglected but brilliant French impressionist ballet score by Claude Debussy, an orchestral concerto of Hungarian themes by Zoltán Kodaly and a blazing rhapsody of Romanian music by George Enesco.
