N.C. Symphony: Enigma Variations

When: Fri., Oct. 21, 8 p.m. and Sat., Oct. 22, 8 p.m. 2016

The prim nostalgia of Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations can sometimes overwhelm its surroundings with a numinous glow. The two recent works on this program attempt to outshine Elgar in different ways. On the one hand, Latvian composer Peteris Vasks’s Epifania builds from a similar point of pathos with long, slow lines. On the other, American Julia Adolphe’s Dark Sand, Sifting Light dwells on the question of mystery in the Elgar, musing on a series of unanswerable questions. —Dan Ruccia
