Musical Inspirations

Keppel Auditorium 2300 W. Innes St. Robertson College-Community Center, Salisbury, NC, United States

An evening of music inspired by friends, family, and colleagues opening with Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s Ballade in A minor. We are then treated to the Violin Concerto in A minor by Czech composer Antonin Dvorak whose melodic genius shows affection for the folk music of his homeland. We then hear George Walker’s beautiful Lyric for Strings, a work inspired by and dedicated to his grandmother. Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations is a true testament to friendship with each movement written for a close friend.
