The Planets and Enigma Variations at Cadogan Hall

The Mozart Symphony Orchestra of London perform exquisite new arrangements of two wonderful orchestral pieces.

There are no dates/times listed for this event | Visit website

Two of Britain’s best loved orchestral pieces, The Planets and Enigma Variations have been re-worked by George Morton into an astonishing chamber arrangement. Both works are known for their large orchestras but these exquisite new arrangements capture their nature, grandeur and excitement perfectly.

Each movement of The Planets Suite is named after a planet of the Solar System and its corresponding astrological character as defined by Holst. The Enigma variations are really called Variations on an Original Theme and the enigma is that no-one has ever discovered the meaning behind the theme in question. Each variation is a brilliant depiction of Elgar’s friends.

The Mozart Symphony Orchestra of London under their principal conductor Philip Mackenzie will bring both pieces to Cadogan Hall on 12th February 2017.

Cadogan Hall 5 Sloane Terrace , London SW1X 9DQ
