The Philharmonic performs the Enigma Variations, Elgar’s crowning achievement, a portrayal of his social circle, disguised in irresistible tunes and “inside jokes,” with the heart of the work, the stirring Nimrod, often heard in commemoration of departed friends. Britten’s Four Sea Interludes reveal shimmering, haunting, and ferocious moods of the oceans.
