Zukerman's Elgar - Master Series 9

Pinchas Zukerman - Director/Violin

Beethoven - Egmont: Overture
Mozart - Violin Concerto No.5 'Turkish'
Elgar - Enigma Variations

Now, this is music with personality! But whose is it? Elgar’s Enigma Variations are inspired by real people, friends of the composer – a diverse company whose portraits come alive each time they are performed. Pinchas Zukerman is an ideal host, generous and gregarious, bringing them all together for a convivial evening with us.


Zukerman’s own chance to shine comes in the assured elegance and seemingly endless melody of Mozart’s Fifth Violin Concerto. But Mozart’s mercurial temperament also shows through – look out for playful digressions in the rondo!


Enjoy Beethoven’s ‘Egmont’ Overture as a sort of aperitif or antipasto before all these guests arrive!


Presenting Partner



The Mingling Room


FREE. One hour prior to the concerts in the Meeting Hall located just behind the Adelaide Town Hall (apart from 2 Nov, when it will be in the Adelaide Town Hall Auditorium). There’ll be a bar so after the pre-concert presentation, you can linger, buy a drink and discuss the music with new and old friends before enjoying the concert.


Explore iconic masterworks by Beethoven, Mozart, and Elgar in this discussion between educator and conductor Graham Abbott and Head of Strings at the Elder Conservatorium, violinist Elizabeth Layton (Shirin Lim, Associate Principal First Violin on 31 Oct).
